The Civil Rights Movement of 1955-1968 is a biblically-based, socio-religious phenomenon, with far-reaching social and political consequences. The Movement's leaders held firm to their conviction that human progress is not a matter of historical inevitability. They never wavered in their faith that God and humans must work cooperatively in order to effect good. They worked with a sense of providence and confidence, sensing themselves as well-equipped for a mission of such towering proportions. Devotees of the Civil Rights Movement laid their lives on the line for their dreams. As a result, the movement succeeded and America had to move in the direction of authentic equality between and among all human beings.
