This topic covers what scholars describe as the movement's "Master Narrative": The momentous decade between the 1954 Brown school integration suit through passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In this lecture, Dr. Butler will discuss the importance of the grassroots nature of the movement, the importance of non-violence as a strategy to obtain legal equality, and why students should understand that the civil rights movement made Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and not the other way around
