America’s Two “Reconstructions” Part 2 —— How Did the Civil Rights Movement Change the United States?
Aug 14 all-day
America’s Two “Reconstructions” Part 2 —— How Did the Civil Rights Movement Change the United States?

Wang Xi
Professor of History, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

At the end of Reconstruction (1863-1877), southern blacks gradually lost their newly acquired rights and status as equal citizens. Being denied the right to vote, placed at the bottom of economic ladder, and subject to state-imposed Jim Crow laws in civic and public life, African Americans were turned into true second-class citizens of the nation. Confronting such suppressive and challenging environment, how did African Americans maintain their faith of regaining the rights? How did they continue to create and nurture antidiscrimination forces, ideologically and constitutionally? How did the changes of domestic and international situations help reshape the nation’s power structures and pave the way for the coming of the Civil Rights Movement? What political and legal resources did the activists of various backgrounds and at different levels use and what strategies did they adopt to advance their courses? How did the legislations of the Civil Rights Movement expand the constitutional principles of the first Reconstruction and how did they affect today’s enjoyment of civil rights by American citizens? The second talk will focus on the causes, processes, and outcomes of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s, with a brief discussion on how Asian Americans were related to the movement and how new challenges were posed after America’s “Rights Revolution.”
