Finally, the achievements of the Civil Rights Movement helped to advance democracy within the society. Based on the secondary source “Race Relations in the United States, 1960-1980,” successes of the black population energized and inspired other ethnic minorities as never before. In the 1970s, there were movements in the Indian American, Latino, Asian American, and LGBT communities. Similarly to African Americans during the Civil Rights Movement, these new movements emerged as a result of being on the margins of the U.S. political, economic, and cultural life. These minorities realized that through forming a group consciousness, it was possible to air their grievances in a more powerful way. In order to reach their aims, the minority groups used the rhetoric, tactics, and forms that had been earlier used by the African American movement. For instance, on February 7, 1973, Indians from the American Indian Movement decided to occupy the town of Wounded Knee, and they held it for 71 days. At the time, that was the third most documented event after the Vietnam War and Watergate.
