Annotation: During the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, African Americans staged civil rights marches in Washington, D.C. and the South. In their struggle for equality, African Americans demanded basic constitutional rights that had been denied to them for over 150 years, such as equal access to jobs, the right to decent homes and neighborhoods, equal protection under the law, and the freedom to assemble peaceably.
