The History of the USA between 1840 and 1975 is one of the topics covered in GCSE History. The last period looked at is the time from 1945 until 1975. This is the second of four quizzes on these years and it looks in particular at the struggle for civil rights in 1960s America.
During the 1960s, under the leadership of Martin Luther King and others, African Americans began their struggle for civil rights. They demanded an end to racial discrimination of all kinds in the USA. Much was achieved in the 1960s, despite differences within the coalition - and King's assassination in 1968.
