Explain if the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s effectively changed the nation?

Introduction:

In the 1960’s one event that touched nearly every American was the Civil Rights Movement. The election of President Kennedy ushered the United States into the 1960s with the New Frontier: a bold set of expectations, desires, and liberalism that expanded highly under Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society and quickly dissolved as the United States’ domestic environment fell into chaos and disarray. With the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, expanding drug culture and race riots transformed the United States from a land of unparalleled possibilities in the early 1960s to a nation facing numerous domestic challenges. This assignment will aid your understanding of how America granted equality to all minority groups and slowly moved toward diversity.
