The effort to provide full citizenship rights for all Americans has been a continuous struggle from the origins of the nation. The struggle intensified during the decades of the 1950s and 1960s. Those rights were officially acknowledged in 1965 and Martin Luther King Jr. emerged as a symbol of the long march for civil rights. We will review the history of that long march and illustrate the role of culture, interfaith religious cooperation, and technology in establishing full civil rights for all.
