POWER & PROGRESS: the Fight for the Civil Rights in the USA in the 1960s.
1) 1968 Mexico Olympic Games: Black Power salute by the African-American athletes John Carlos and Tommie Smith.
2) 1961: the Freedom Rides
3) 1955: Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott
4) 1960: the Nashville sit-ins at diner counters.
5) 1954: Karen Brown vs. Board of Education
AND OF COURSE: I might have mentioned it a couple of times in class (ha ha ha), check the graphic novel MARCH by JOhn Lewis, Aidan and Powell for a thorough and entertaining account of the fight, available in English at the library (and in French under the name Wake Up America). ..
