A Simple, yet Powerful Movement

Let’s go back to the Civil Rights Movement during Reverend Martin Luther King’s time. He was an advocate of non-violent protests to get things to change. To see the power of a non-violent protest was very stimulating. I did not realize the power and courage civil rights activists -- including young people, college students like me -- had to have to stand up for the things that they believed in. I love the fact that they stood up for what they knew was right and were willing to die for it. I also loved the fact that it was not only black people, but white people too; and it wasn't just one protest, but hundreds. The control you had to have is something very remarkable.
