Sometimes teachers can miss a few things.
It wasn't that long ago in America when a black man couldn’t attend a university because of the color of his skin. Behind the profound legacies of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., there are many other pioneers who paved the way during the Civil Rights Movement. These icons are activists, some as young as 6-years-old, who were brave enough to stand up for themselves by throwing a wrench in societal norms of segregation and inequality of race. These are some of the Civil Rights heroes you may not have learned about in school.
