How did they overcome these obstacles? They mostly overcame these obstacles through the African-American Civil Rights movement, however, racism is still around today. The movement lasted from 1954-1968. This movement used things such as nonviolent protests and sit-ins. These forms of protest brought on things like the Civil Rights Act of 1964 this “banned discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in employment practices and ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace, and by public accommodations.” Overtime, tradition of white supremacy declined, which slowed the spread of the Klu Klux Klan and other forms of racism.
