Democracy: Limitations and Possibilities DBQ

from Columbia University America History Online

During the 1960s, a series of widely disparate protest movements emerged in the United States. While the antiwar movement directed against U.S. intervention in the Vietnam War appeared to be the most salient, many of the movements' leaders and activists expressed discontent with American government and society. In particular, members of previously underrepresented groups—including students, women, and ethnic minorities—sought a greater role in determining the goals, values, and policies of the U.S. government. The thread that tied many of these groups together was a desire to redefine American democracy to make it more inclusive and responsive to the needs of previously oppressed or underrepresented groups.
