      Para 2.Truman desegregating the army but talk about how officers etc largely white

      Para 3. Cases that brought change eg brown vs the board of education, Murder of Emmett Till outrage, bussing

      Para 4. Role of Martin Luther King. pastor,peaceful contrast to malcolm x,inspired by ghandi. Lead March from selma to Montgomery huge success gave black peple voting right
