Board of Education decision and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, later felt betrayed as the original concept of equal individual opportunity evolved toward the concept of equal group results  (Civil Right Quotes) My parents were very active in the Civil Rights Movement. My father was a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) worker; my mother was a secretary with the Panthers  (Civil Right Quotes) The social issues outside of football are not as defined as they were earlier, when integration took place and certain rights were legislated. The Civil Rights movement is over. Individuals can buy homes wherever they want, travel first class wherever they want, eat wherever they want  (Civil Right Quotes) Look at the Civil Rights Movement.

But not heeding his own advice  (Civil Right Quotes) I think young people don’t really know that much about the Civil Rights Movement and about the history of African Americans in this country.

Peace is a precondition for our existence. Peace permits our continued existence.  (Civil Right Quotes) Individual civil disobedience was everybody’s inherent right, like the right of self-defence in normal life.  (Civil Right Quotes)
