1968: American Tipping Point for the Civil Rights Movement Tell a Friend about this Course

Malcolm Gladwell defines a tipping point as that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, and spreads like wildfire. This course seeks to understand how the modern notion of civil rights spread like wildfire in 1968. As a class we will start by looking at the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., then move into the passing of the 1968 Civil Rights Act and end with the rise of the Black Power Movement, all understood through the crucial lens of 1968.
