The equality that we enjoy today is due to the oppression's that were challenged throughout history, especially in the 1950's and 60's. Some of the inequalities that were being fought then are still being fought today. Minorities continue to fight for equal rights in this country and many people today are still following the blue print of how to fight these inequalities that was laid out by the civil rights leaders from the 50's and 60's.
