American Government

Give an overview of the African American struggle for civil rights since the Civil War. In particular, give 2- mechanisms that were used in the South to withhold civil rights from African Americans.

Finally, using the text give an overall assessment of the state of civil rights for African Americans today? What factors suggest the Civil Rights Movement was successful and what contradicts this conclusion? Are African Americans truly given equal status today? Why or why not? Back your argument with evidence and examples.
