     Our last eras covered in class were the 1900's to current America.  During this time, there many revolutions of different types.  When we think of revolutions, we usually think of wars and barricades, but there was a lot more going on in this time period.  We had social and political revolutions that changed the world in their own way.

     During 20th century America we had many social revolutions.  One of the most intense civil revolutions was the fight for African American rights.  Many African Americans were discriminated against by unfair treatment in society.  Whether it was bullying or discriminating schools, African Americans were tormented by those who thought they were superior.  But soon, people such as W.E.B DuBois founded organizations like the NAACP.  Started fighting against the unfair treatment of African Americans by protesting or starting their own schools for them to have a better chance in the world.
