The Modern Civil Rights Movement is a significant landmark in United States history. This movement was a struggle for human rights directly challenging the nation to extend its democratic principles to African Americans and all peoples. This course sheds light on the often overlooked strategic planning that supported the direction of the events and is told by a voice intimately involved in the organization of movement—Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. Topics include the history of the campaigns, the different coalitions and groups, philosophy and methods of nonviolent direct action, and the contemporary application of nonviolent conflict transformation. The course hosts several guest speakers, including Andrew Young, Reverend C.T. Vivian, Henry "Hank" Thomas, and Constance Curry.

TOP REVIEWS FROM FROM FREEDOM RIDES TO FERGUSON: NARRATIVES OF NONVIOLENCE IN THE AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
It was a very useful course to get introduced to the Civil Rights Movement and the different strategies they implemented to fight for their cause. Thank you!
This was a great course. I enjoyed hearing Mr Layfayette speak and share history . I understand my role in being instrumental for social change
a must do course for every global citizen. Its not just exploring an idea but its also about exploring you as a human being and your capabilities.
This course was outstanding. There was a lot of information about the Civil Rights I didn't know about. The power of learning never gets old.
