      One hundred years after the Civil War, America witnessed marches,

      The nation's attention was focused on the inequities of racial
      segregation and discrimination against African Americans. Landmark
      actions - the Brown decision of 1954, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the
      Voting Rights Act of 1965 - resulted. What changes can we attribute to
      this era of activism? Has America achieved equal rights for all its
      citizens? Where are we today, and where do we go from here? Join this
      LOC discussion in the ASO.
