	The post WWII African American civil rights movement (1954-1968)
provided the paradigm for the civil rights movements of numerous
traditionally disempowered groups in America. Chief among them are women,
gays, the handicapped, and the elderly. As we experience the turn of the
century and approach the beginning of a new millenium, we have diverse
sectors of American culture demanding civil rights. Thus, we have the
diversity movement. This course will seek to provide a descriptive and
critical analysis of the efforts of those various groups to procure positive
public policy.
