Historians sometimes disagree on the exact dates of or circumstances under which social movements begin and end.  In 2005 the United States Postal Service issued a series of commemorative stamps depicting ten important incidents in the modern civil rights movement. These are presented as the Big Ten and they are in the order in which they occurred. 

No doubt scholars, teachers and students might disagree.  Would you say this is a definitive list?  If not, what events do you think have been left out?  Why would you include them?
