[Vietnam War] Diverse group of people protesting the war. One of the protesters is holding a sign that states "Send Marines to Alabama NOT Vietnam."Vietnam War civil rights movement. Major protests fair voting laws Dr. Martin Later King Malcolm X equal rights assassinated
While the Vietnam war was in full swing, America was in the throes of the civil rights movement. Major protests were taking place across the south in order to insure that fair voting laws were enacted, and two leaders of the civil rights movement - Dr. Martin Later King Jr and Malcolm X - were assassinated for simply fighting for equal rights.
Many anti-war protestors believed that the U.S. government should worry about conflicts that were taking place on their own soil rather than a war that was all the way across the globe. These protestors were made up of clergy people, college students, and even some of their professors.
