As a part of GCSE History students will learn about the USA between 1840 and 1975. The final part this section covers the 30 years from 1945 until 1975 and this is the last of four quizzes on that period, focussing in particular on the advances in civil right for African Americans and other groups, which took place in 1970s USA.
The 1970s saw some progress in achieving equal rights for African Americans, after the campaigns and legislation of the 1960s. Following their example other groups in the USA began to find their voices. Native Americans, Hispanics, women and homosexuals all called for their own civil rights.
