Civil Rights During the Cold War. The Cold War lasted between the year 1947 to the year 1991. Between those years a civil rights act was active. http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/civil-rights-act This article describe the civil rights movement of the year 1964. To summarize, this act ended segregation in public places such as public bathrooms, libraries, and water fountains. This article also explains somme history of before the civil rights act explaining that decades before the recession the act was refused to be passed. Years later John F. Kennedy became president pushed hard in order to segregation. I think that this article takes the side against segregation, the author has a bias opinion over John F. Kennedy often complimenting him, and sharing one of his quotes. “will not be fully free until all of its citizens are free.” I agree with this article, the civil rights movement was a large event during the cold war that needed to occur. With this act the people finally began to receive the rights they deserved.
