When Rosa Parks refused to leave her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama one fateful afternoon in December 1955, the stage was set for what would later become the modern Civil Rights Movement, launching the public careers of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and other civil rights leaders and organizations. What is less widely known, however, is how black and white activists in the American South during the 1950s and 1960s have come to inspire nonviolent political and social movements, worldwide, to the present day. Utilizing historical literature, biography, and documentary film, this course will feature both an in-depth study of the origins, structure, and development of the American Civil Rights Movement, as well as focus on the success, and failings, of a select number of nonviolent struggles worldwide.
