Civil Rights Leaders

Three Big Gamechangers

The three biggest people in the civil rights movement were Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Malcolm X. All three, at some point in their lives, had a nonviolent approach to the movement, although early on Malcolm X was more on the radical side. All three tried their very best to make significant changes to society.

The Same Goal

The Similarities

Although they did it in different ways and from different positions, all three of these men fought for the same goal: racial equality. Each man contributed a great deal to the movement in any way they couls. All three were very influential speakers. Each of these men deserve large amounts of credit for the amount of work they did for the Civil Rights Movement.
