AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS: LAND OF THE FREE?

This committee will be set in the civil rights movement that shook America in every manner. Leaders organized peaceful movements, with civil disobedience playing a huge role. Despite inspiring leaders making every effort to advance their cause for equality and justice, the depths of the US government are secretly conspiring against these movements and their leaders, largely due to the fear of the unknown if they were to succeed. At the time, a secret program, now known as COINTELPRO put informants deep within the workings of these civil rights movements and caused chaos and destruction from within, slowing efforts. Delegates will have to advance their causes, being wary of who they can trust.
