The sixties focused on all levels of discrimination, using marches, sit-ins, and other forms of non-violent resistance. By that time, the world was focused on what was going on in the United States. In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was passed, officially ending segregation in the United States.

Although their ideas were not perfect, they were the beginnings of what can be called the civil rights movement.
