? The civil rights movement was a worldwide political movement for equality before the law occurring between approximately 1950s and 1980s. ? Main battle fields: ? Northern Ireland Africa Canada ? United States German France

? In many situations it took the form of campaigns of civil resistance aimed at achieving change by nonviolent forms of resistance.(sit-in , boycotts etc.) In some situations it was accompanied, or followed, by armed rebellion.

. How did it come about
? After white-dominated Democratic Party regained political control over the South.
