Web Research Activities

1. Research the social movements concerning civil rights for various racial and ethnic minorities. Consider why they came about at different times and did not constitute a larger, cohesive movement. Also be sure to examine their various methods and the degree to which they worked.

2. Research the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) approach to the civil rights movements for racial and ethnic minorities. Given the methods of sabotage employed by the FBI, what can we understand about the larger government’s attitude toward the extension of civil rights to these groups?

3. Research the various Black Lives Matter demonstrations, the Standing Rock/NoDAPL demonstrations, and the March for Our Lives demonstrations in order to compare and contrast them to one another. Determine whether they have the aspects necessary to deem them social movements and compare and contrast their tactics.
