This episode profiles some of the 20th century’s most pivotal civil rights reformers. Their heroic journeys for justice began over six decades ago from city streets in Alabama and lunch counters in Greensboro. This episode chronicles bold stands that sparked a moral revolution which continues today. We relive Rosa Parks’ refusing to budge which touched off the year-long Montgomery Bus Boycott....The Little Rock Nine facing violent mobs to desegregate schools... College students enduring blows while sitting-in for service rights. We follow the tragically intersecting roads of visionaries like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, whose riveting rhetoric fueled a generation towards purpose and progress. Listeners time-travel through sit-ins, protest marches, and campaigns which led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965—a law that changed America, even as work remains unfinished towards truly equal rights, representation and economic opportunity. Understanding this living history helps illuminate present-day struggles.
