Best Answer

Republicans and Northern Democrats.

AnswerI beg your pardon.


AnswerRather than being split along party lines, the Civil Rights Movement tended to split the country along North-South lines. Northern politicians tended to be either pro-Civil Rights, or neutral. Southern politicians tended to be anti-Civil Rights, or rarely, neutral.

What political party supported slavery during the 1860's?

The Democratic Party supported slavery during the 1860's. The Republican party was created in 1854 to oppose slavery. During the mid 1900's, the Democratic party became the party that supported the Civil Rights movement. NOT COMPLETELY TRUE. The Republican party opposed slavery and they DID support the Civil Rights Movement along with Democrats in office. The south was still a Democratic based area and JFK feared if he had fought hard for civil rights in the south, he would lose his voting base there. He did it anyway and that is why he was killed in Dallas (The South). MLK Jr. was a Republican, Charles Heston was a Republican who was the 1st actor to march in the Civil Rights movement. All the Republicans in Congress pushed for civil rights as well. Earl Warren, the judge who stated that in brown vs board of education the separate but equal doctrine was "not equal" and he got rid of that doctrine and allowed blacks to integrate in white schools. He was Republican.

What were the political groups in 1960's?

I'm not sure which political groups you are asking about-- in the US, there were, of course, the two main political parties (the Democrats and the Republicans). But the 60s were an era of social movements: the women's movement (also called "women's liberation"); the civil rights movement, the gay rights movement, the anti-war movement, etc. There were also movements that tried to combine social change with politics, such as the Black Panther Party.
