African American Politicians & Civil Rights Activists

Series: Pioneering African Americans

By Joanne Randolph

Through centuries of suffering, slavery, inequality, discrimination, segregation, and racist violence, African Americans have endured, resisted, fought, and, increasingly over time, won many battles. These victories were propelled by a groundswell of grassroots action, but they were also motivated and organized by courageous and inspirational leadership. Journalists, abolitionists, educators, religious leaders, politicians, judges, and even schoolchildren showed the world a better way forward and led the way down the very difficult road to greater equality, freedom, and civil rights. This collection profiles the leading lights in the struggle for freedom and equality, including MLK, Coretta Scott King, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. DuBois, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, and Ruby Bridges, among many others.
