Civil Rights Discussion Forum

Topic: Civil Rights Discussion Forum
Description:
Please prepare 1 page initial posting to the discussion prompt using at least 2 references.

I will send 2 posts from my classmates, you will need to write responses to them (each 130 words). Save the place for that, I wont be adding any extra page. The responses may come later.

You don’t need to include title page.

You can submit initial post as final version, as responses will be provided later.

Make sure you use textbook or class readings.

NOTE! the name of the final file you upload must be the same as the topic of the order

Participate in the discussion forum by answering the following questions:

Read the 14th Amendment, section one (see page A25 in the appendix of the textbook). Why did you think there continued to be legal segregation in the USA after the passage of the 14th amendment in 1868? Why do you think it took 100 more years, and the civil rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s, to finally end legally segregation in the USA? What does this history say about the USA as a society?

Remember, make sure your opening post has something worthwhile to say. One, two, or three sentences is not enough writing to successfully answer the question.
