For your weekly Discussion Question, ask yourself, “How the modern civil rights movement might have fared without the growth of television.? Would activists have been able to “reach the conscience of America” had TV news not brought compelling images into the living rooms of millions of Americans? What strategies might the activists have employed to gain widespread support?
In your Discussion Question essay answer, give three examples of activist activities (read your textbook chapters 27 and 28 for ideas) and then argue (with researched details) if the media helped or hindered the national civil rights movement.
