Martin Luther King and a Picture of Civil Rights History

[Updated from the archives.]

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people. (Martin Luther King.)

Martin Luther King lost his life standing up for what is right. Taking a stand for Civil Rights in the 1960s could ruin careers, too. These three stood up with Martin Luther King anyway.

I hope to always stand up for what is right as well, and do it all by the grace of God.

Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty.” (2 Chronicles 14:11.)

*Bonus points for those who can identify the three people in that photo. Extra bonus points for describing some of the other actions each of them took in working for civil rights.
