Part of that has to do with the current generation learning lessons from the activists who came before them, said Sarah J. Jackson, a professor at Northeastern University who studies how activists use and are presented in media.
Millennials, she said, were raised to believe that those who boycotted, marched and committed acts of civil disobedience helped right many of the country’s wrongs. History teaches them that those who protested the Vietnam War and took part in the civil rights struggle and fight for women’s rights “were right and just,” Jackson said.
