From 1960 to 1971, public civil rights protests swept the country. In Atlanta, a mass national democratic movement on behalf of civil rights emerged. The movement was led in part by several of Mays' Morehouse students, who were at the forefront of the student-led phase of the civil rights movement in Atlanta. Their appeal, titled “An Appeal for Human Rights,” became a powerful ideological tool for black students as they pushed back against segregation using the lessons and wisdom they received from Mays.
