I need to come up with four examples of social movements, current or past, and describe the key features of each movement. The problem is I do not know where to begin.
Any help would be appreciated.
One of the greatest social movements was the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and 70s. Ordinary people, both black and white, joined together to force people to accept integration in public facilities and in employment.
The first site explains social movements. The second site lists many noteworthy social movements. You can click on links in these articles for more information.
Thank you so much!
You're very welcome.
