Why was it called the civil rights movement?

Civil Rights are the rights of citizens to vote, to receive equal treatment before the law, and to share equally with other citizens the benefits of public facilities, such as schools. There were certain minority groups in the US, like Native Americans, African- Americans, and Hispanics, that were not receiving equal treatment when it came to their civil rights. The modern day Civil Rights movement was an attempt by those groups, led by African-Americans on the most part, to acquire those rights that belong to all citizens.
