        The Civil Rights Landscape Today for People of Color

        Discover ways in which systemic inequality persists today in the lives of people of color, women, and those living in both urban and rural areas, in this video from Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now. Many communities have been denied quality affordable housing, and a rapidly growing wealth gap disproportionately impacts communities of color and other ethnic minorities. While some progress has been made, one young activist states that skin color and where a child lives can predict whether he or she is more likely to end up in prison or in a career. Another activist credits Black Lives Matters movement with directing needed focus on ending racial profiling and police brutality. This resource is part of the Civil Rights: Then and Now collection.
