1. To
what extent did the Civil Rights Movement (and events since) make good on the
promise of Reconstruction? Please be
sure to reference specific Civil Rights successes and failures in the short and
long term (i.e. through today). You will
want to consider the great political accomplishments of Reconstruction (amendments,
Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875, as well as the Force Acts {KKK Act}), as
well as future political, economic, and social change for African
Americans. Then, consider if the Civil
Rights Movement through today has made them a reality in America.
2. You should consult a variety of sources to inform your
response.
