Civil Rights: Tactics & Strategy for Change

Civil Rights:  Tactics and Strategy for Change

 

Segregation, discrimination, and unfair, these are the words that were commonly used by the North Omaha black community in the 1950s and 1960s to describe the struggles of minorities. These words would thrive in a new era, The Civil Rights Movement. The Civil Rights Movement was made up of citizens who wanted to achieve equality, to take charge in their lives, and to do something to make things right, not only for blacks, but other ethnic groups as well. Some groups were non-violent such as the 4CL (the Citizens Coordinating Committe for Civil Liberties) and the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement for Colored People). Others were more radical such as the Black Panthers. However, they all shared a common goal: Civil Rights.
