This paper outlines Booker T. Washington's strategy for obtaining racial equality, W.E.B. DuBois's more aggressive approach, Ida B. Wells' activism and Marcus Garvey's radical ideas. The paper discusses black activism during the Second World War and the Cold War and how the civil rights movement began to change during the late 1960s and early 1970s as violence became more and more prominent. The paper concludes that despite this violence, the civil rights movement has come a long way, although there is still more work to be done.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history, struggle has been a common thing for African-Americans. It seems as though they are forced to fight for any progress that they attain, even if it is just for the simplest rights. Things have changed greatly since the days of Booker T Washington and WEB DuBois and they will continue to change until complete equality is obtained. The Civil Rights Movement has constantly evolved and it will continue to evolve, as African-Americans deserve to be treated as first-class citizens."
