In 1950's America, the equality of man envisioned by the Declaration ofIndependence was far from a reality. People of color — Blacks,Hispanics, Asians — were discriminated against in many ways, both overtand covert. The 1950-1960's were turbulent times in America, whenracial barriers began to come down due to Supreme Court decisions, likeBrown v. Board of Education; and due to an increase in the activism ofblacks, fighting for equal rights. One man among many is rememberedtoday, Martin Luther King Jr., as he stood up and fought thenon-violent fight for peace and equality.
