Explain what it took to less then 4% of African-American could vote to the election of the first African-American President. Please start with the transition of African-Americans from the Republican party to the Democratic party.
Please explain how the Civil Rights movement started, gathered steam, and force changes to elect the first African-American President. Don’t answer the questions individually.
