Key People

Rosa-Parks-Dickson1dec05.jpgReform movements almost always have several key people associated with them. These are either the people who got the movement started or were the public face of the movement.

For instance, although many people were involved in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's, almost everyone knows about Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. They would be considered key people in the movement. A couple of other people were also key to the movement even though they aren't quite as famous. These include civil rights lawyer, Thurgood Marshall and a group of students known as The Little Rock Nine who were the first African Americans to attend a newly integrated high school.
