Protests & Political Activity By Americans

Can you help me understand this History question?

he creation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have created certain expectations by the American public in terms of what the nation can and should offer its citizens, and the nation has seen protests when those expectations have not been met. In the final three chapters in the textbook this has been one of the themes (the relationship between American citizens, and their rights in conjunction with the role of government in securing those rights).

  • Which right(s) (or ideals behind specific rights) has been the biggest motivating factor for protests and political activity by American citizens (examples include: Montgomery Bus Boycott, Freedom Rides, March on Washington for Jobs and Freedoms, Chicano Rights, American Indian Rights, Women’s Rights, Gay Rights)?
