Can you name some famous civil rights leaders?
Right now I got (for white people):
1) Mother Theresa
2) Pope John Paul the 3rd
3) Bill Clinton
however, I am having trouble recalling more. I want to make a video that is a bit like a tribute to people bringing about a better world.
I also have:
6) Muhattma Ghandi
7) Martin Luther King Jr
8) Malcolm X (In the end he was more like Martin Luther King)
9) Rosa Parks
10) Lady Mary Wortley Montagu
Any additions to this list would be great. Whether it be for gay, woman, race or etc... also some oriental civil rights leaders would be great. I am not aware of any at the moment.
I want to make a sorta tribute to all of them. I thought it would be a nice side project. People that tried to bring about happiness and equality to everyone.

Mother Theresa wasn't white, and in the end, why segregate them at all? Civil rights leaders want coexistence, so to even care what race they were cheapens their legacy.
