People often associate civil rights with the campaign in the late 1950s and 1960s to achieve social and political equality and freedom for black Americans in the United States. Civil rights campaigners have also fought to gain rights for Chicanos and Indigenous peoples. Worldwide, the struggle for civil rights has included Catholics in Northern Ireland, Aboriginal peoples in Australia, and black South Africans. Describing reform movements in history, this book also brings campaigns for civil rights up to date with rights for women, LGBTQ+ people, and people with disabilities. Links to further information help readers find out more about current campaigns and become activists themselves.
