<h3>Course Goals/Description:</h3> <p>Students should become aware
of the hardships faced by people who were willing to risk their
jobs, home and even their lives to win the “prize” of justice, self-
respect and fair treatment. What was gained from this period, which
made this decade of marches, meetings, jailings, sit-ins, and
freedom rides? These events made America a more democratic society,
gave rise to a host of other movements, which transformed the face
of American culture, changed those who participated in it, and
influenced and created a new generation of American leadership.<p>
