    "This short history of the civil rights movement opens with the abolition of slavery and the impositionof Jim Crow laws following the Civil War. The important events of the movement are reviewed, concentrating on the direct action era of the 1950s and 1960s, and concluding with the warning of the peaceful resistance championed by Martin Luther King, Jr. and the shift to the more militant Black Power movement in the early 1970s. Using a chronological order format, the program summarizes both legal actions, such as laws, constitutional amendments, and court cases, and the better known direct actions, such as marches, boycotts, and sit-ins. It also explains the contributions of major leaders such as King, Malcolm X, and Lyndon Johnson. Each tape concludes with a long clip of either King or Johnson speaking about the movement. Technical quality is good, with visuals that include photos, news footage, and illustrations. Graphic headlines announce each new topic. Audio is clear, with a male narrator."
