The modern Civil Rights Movement is remembered as a domestic (national) struggle over racial equality and the nature of American democracy. Recently, however, some scholars have argued that the movement can only be truly understood if we view it within an international framework, taking into account global politics. Which side would you take in this debate? Please discuss at least three distinct substantial issues in your essay to prove your point. Examples include but are not limited to: race and U.S. involvement in the war itself; postwar international diplomacy; Cold War policy; Japanese internment; the Bracero program; race and immigration policy.
