Focus on the Civil Rights Movement in Texas. Choose from African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, or even women in Texas. If you want a challenge research and write over Asian-American or Native-American Civil Rights movements in Texas (there is very little research to find). Begin with a brief description of racial norms in Texas society after the Civil War period. Discuss racial divides and tensions in 20th century Texas history, particularly after World War II, and paying particular attention to the modern Civil Rights Movements of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Explain in detail any organizations, movements, and accomplishments in the struggle toward equality. In a multi-paragraph essay of at least 500 words, discuss your topic. Make sure to include an introduction, body paragraphs, and a strong conclusion on the importance of the topic and its significance to history. Use images to help enhance your discussion. Make sure to cite any and all sources you use at the end of your discussion. Your textbook must be used and cited as a source, including specific page numbers.
