Civil Rights Heroes on Facebook


Civil Rights Heroes (Workers and Volunteers) on Facebook covers the Civil Rights movement that isn’t covered in most history books.

The goal is to encourage people to build upon successes of the past and add a modern hip-hop twist to make a difference.

Today’s realities are calling us to fight, and we can learn a thing or two from those who fought and won major victories in the past.

On Civil Rights Heroes (Workers and Volunteers) on Facebook  you will find interviews and stories about those respective civil rights organizations: Freedom Riders, Freedom School, Council of Federated Organizations, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Congress of Racial Equality, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Southern Students Organizing Committee, Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, Summer Community and Political Education, Petersburg Improvement Association, rabbis and ministers of many faiths and photojournalists.

The page also will highlight new Civil Rights advocates and leaders, who are building upon the work of Civil Rights Veterans.

Like Civil Rights Heroes (Workers and Volunteers) on Facebook and become inspired by ordinary people, like you and me, who decided to “do more than scratch the surface.”
