You cannot hear/read the words "civil rights icon" without thinking of Rosa Parks. Put yourself in her shoes, and I don't know if I would have had the nerve to ignore that bus driver...pretty amazing.
Thank you, Allison! I've been laughing all morning at the zero response on this question....plenty for "What trash TV do you like?"....but none for this! Ladies!!!!!:)Mine is Rosa Parks, too.
You should have known I would respond to this this!
I have to agree...Rosa Parks. She was the first person who came to mind when I read your question.
harriet tubman!!!she was just amazing.civil rights AND women's suffrage... seriously. how cool.
I know it isn't original but Rosa Parks.That lady had balls of steel.
Again, Rosa Parks.
I would have to go with Abe Lincoln too.
A predecessor to the civil rights movement-Harriet Tubman. For years I've been teaching my fifth grade students about her. Truly inspiring...makes me think of one of my favorite quotes. "What you would you try if you knew you couldn't fail?"
I want to say Abraham Lincoln but I feel like Obama is beating us over the head with Lincoln lately. In honor of MLK day, I will say MLK.
Yes, I am late in answering this question, but my favorite civil rights icon was truly MLK. "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."Martin Luther King, Jr.
