Series Inspiration:

“There needs to be a constantly growing and always reviving activist movement across America if we are going to maintain and expand victories and our vision for America. Since MLK Day is upon us next week, we must not forget Martin Luther King stood before and with thousands of people who made the Civil Rights movement what it was.  From Jamestown's slave pens to Montgomery's boycotted busses, these ordinary men, women and the hundreds of children who led the movement, labored in obscurity, from Selma to Montgomery to Washington they provided the foot soldiers who walked in dignity, rather than ride in shame.  They faced bombs in Birmingham, mobs in Mississippi and sat down at lunch counters so others could stand up.  They marched and they organized.” (Julian Bond, Activist)
