A movement during the 50s and 60s that involved the pursuance of equal treatment of blacks and whites in America. Blacks of the time period desired economic success and social acceptance among whites.
The irony is that these qualities are looked down upon by modern-day blacks, who view intelligence, wealth, success, and the ability to speak correct english as treason to their race. These very ideals that Dr. King and many others gave his life for are hated by modern-day blacks.
1960s Civil Rights Movement:
