US History

I need support with this History question so I can learn better.

As we studied in class, the civil rights movement in the United States was successful, bringing monumenmtal victory for the African American with passage of 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Civil Rights Act. With these Acts, the African Americans were finally given the same rights as the whites Americans were at least in the legal sense. Discuss how this was achieved and also state what role Martin Luther King Jr. took in this success.
