Economics of the Civil Rights Movement
Presented in cooperation with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s was a clarion call for equality, but it was importantly a call for economic justice and inclusion. Celebrate Black History Month as we explore the roots of segregation and the lack of access that led to the demands of the movement. Examine economic themes of the movement using primary sources from the period. Preview classroom-ready activities during this session.
