Based on information from your textbook, the required article, and the video, address the following points:

  • Provide two specific examples of federal laws or Supreme Court rulings that were victories for the equality movements of the 1960s and 1970s and explain how they have contributed to spreading opportunity to a specific group of Americans.
  • Provide at least one specific example of continuing inequality and discuss how history can explain why it still exists.
