Summary Note The American Civil Rights Movement: 1945-1968 is a topic series tailored specifically to the new NSW Modern History syllabus for Year 12. It charts the emergence of the modern American civil rights movement from the early twentieth century and examines the major campaigns, tactics and leadership of the post Second World War era to the emergence of Black Power movements in the late 1960s. The book also examines the influence of Martin Luther King Jnr on other civil rights movements in the United States and in Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. The text is closely aligned with the new Stage 6 History Syllabus and incorporates classic and recent historical interpretations, with regular and relevant visual text.
