Civil Rights leaders' actions message, reached across ethnic lines



Summary:

Like many college students, Bruce Hartford was "an aimless, bored - you know, typical - teenager."

"I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and I was not a very good student," he said.

That year, 1963, a friend invited him to an activist-group meeting. Hartford knew nothing about the cause, but he went along out of curiosity - and, admittedly, boredom.

At the meeting, Hartford learned that the group was seeking equality across racial and ethnic lines for homebuyers in then-all-white Torrance, Calif.

For blacks, Native Americans, Latinos and other underrepresented minorities, the civil rights movement translated into more legal rights, improving property ownership options, voting rights and the desegregation of schools.
