    support of the people in order to maintain his position. A small amount of people did support the movement, so perhaps Johnson being portrayed in this matter is an attempt to symbolize that. If the white majority were shown to be solely hateful and oppressing, that would not bode well for the movie, as people could take offense to that. There was support from the whites towards the black civil rights movement, even though it was miniscule. This modern film may choose to portray Johnson in this…

    the civil rights movements shared similar goals, although their approaches to achieving them were radically different. While both movements searched for solutions to race problems in America, they differed in their belief of if white America would comply to these solutions.
