The structure of opportunities for residents of the contemporary United States is the complicated legacy of a series of collective struggles undertaken by oppressed groups since the arrival of the first European colonizers on the American continent. Using the conceptual tools of sociology, we will review the history of the United States from the point of view of oppressed and marginalized groups, linking their liberation struggles in the past with studies of the opportunities and challenges they face in this country at present.
