Civil Rights Movements Achievements

The permissible tradition of the Brown v Board Education that embraced ‘disconnect ness nevertheless identical’ was knocked over and instituted degradation as a legally impermissible gesture. The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964 abolished employment segregation culture as well the community housing; voting rights reinstatement was evident through the unanimous passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and consequently the abolition auctioning and hiring of housing through the enactment of the Civil Rights of 1968. Farber, David (1996).

With a virtual tranquil political structure with same rights accorded to every human entity regardless of their affiliation, color or race, segregation was pragmatically enhanced and as a result this undermined the propensity of the civil rights movements in their ordeals in advancing their grievances. This prompted a rather militant approach that saw movements like Black Panther Party, the Young Lords, Weathermen and Brown Berets employ aggressive means in constructing a social revolution geared towards deposing the Capitalists with a view of instituting the Black power to represent the marginalized.

The conservatives opposed to change, inaugurated the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with the objective to destabilize the aggression by the blacks.
