Which one was the major turning point of 1968?
I found: 1) assassination of Martin Luther Kinf Jr.
2) assassination of Robert F. Kennedy
Which one was the major turning point of 1973?
1)the Paris Peace Agreement
2)the War-Powers Resolution
I think it might be the second one...

Both assassinations were devastating -- but I think King's assassination resonated more and still has impact today. Many blacks were afraid to elect Barack Obama as president for fear he'd be assassinated as King was.
I agree with you about the War Powers Resolution.

also, for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. did this event end the Civil Rights Movement?
This is what was written on a website

No. King's assassination didn't end the Civil Rights Movement. If anything, it increased the resolve to get fair treatment for everyone.
Check this time line of the Civil Rights Movement.
