»Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!« Martin Luther King Jr. expressed this vision for African Americans in the middle of a long, hard fight for equality. Only half a century ago, segregation between black and white Americans was a reality throughout the U.S. The civil rights movement transformed the country through the persistent use of nonviolent strategies. But have African Americans finally achieved equal rights?

The presentation will have a look at the history, the progress and the legacy of the civil rights movement.
