The purpose of this essay is to create a comparison of the role of the media in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s and what some have called "The New Civil Rights Movement" of today (the last ten years or so).
Specifically, in what ways have the media influenced the progress of these different movements? In what ways, if any, has this influence changed over the last fifty years?
Consider the new types of media--blogs, Twitter, and other social media, etc.--in your discussion.
