History Of Social Movements

Where we are today

Social movements brought us to where we are today, and many martyrs have come from them. Dr. Martin Luther King, a civil rights activist, was assassinated for his beliefs and his attempts to make it so white and black men and women could co-exist. Suffragettes made it so that women had a voice in society, and it wasn't just left up to the men. Hippies also had their own movement, trying to stop the war overseas in Vietnam; but it was never taken as seriously because they were only focused on mind-expanding narcotics and living with nature.
