Civil Rights Activists

The Leaders

Though all of these Civil Rights Activists are well known none will be as well known as Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired many with his powerful speeches and his non-violent protest. Malcolm X reached to a younger group of African Americans that caused violence making him not as popular among the people as Martin Luther King Jr. Jesse Jackson was a very influential individual during the Civil Rights Movement, but will always be remembered for the scandals he was involved in.
