Have you thought of Rosa Parks? She was not a famous or educated person, just a lady trying to get home, but she sparked a huge movement in the south regarding segregation. She is one of my heroes!

What time frame is your class talking about when your question says "in these critical times"? today could be considered a critical time for civil rights and civil liberties, and do these activists need to be American? If not, then what about Nelson Mandela? I am old enough to remember when he was released from incarceration in Africa. I can think of present day actrivists like Maya Angelou and Jesse Jackson that would make interesting talk in a classroom discussion or give some interest to a paper.
Check these sites for more civil rights leaders.
Take a look at the readings that are assigned this week. All of them are right there along with their contributions.
Thank you, Cassondra. :-)
