Anti-Racism Resources

Introduction

The election of Richard M. Nixon as president in 1968 and his use of the term silent majority signaled a major shift in American politics at the end of the 1960s. By 1974, SNCC had disbanded and the Black Panther Party was on the decline, and the NAACP lost a major court case in Milliken v. Bradley, when the Supreme Court declared that school systems were not responsible for desegregation across district lines (From Black Freedom Struggle in the United States). 

This section will provide resources to connect the historic struggle for equality and equity with the current Black Lives Matters movement and the widespread demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism.
