This essay discusses the work of two writers, Philip Klinker and Rogers Smith, who suggest that the legacy of civil rights in America is one of slow progress with almost as many steps backward as forward. The paper explains that this is due to the fact that there is no major national commitment to accomplish anything.

From the Paper:

"Philip Klinker and Rogers Smith suggest that America's pursuit of social democracy can be characterized as an unsteady march toward civil rights. They suggest that the Civil War, World War II and the Cold War were times of progress toward racial equality that were quickly followed by a conservative backlash."
