My school spent alot of time on the civil rights era. we not only studied the period in history class, but also in english class my sophmore year. In english we were required to write a research paper on a civil rights issue or leader. After all the assigments were turned in we were required to go in front of the class and present our topic for everyone to hear. I spent alot of time reading civil rights books and watching some civil rights movies in order to gain enough information to write a 9 page research paper. I think i have above average knowledge of the civil rights era.
