In spite of the racial divide and the negative sentiments that existed during their time, they pursued a path that improved the dire circumstances of many. It often came at a cost, nevertheless, adversity fueled their determination to make a difference. Their brave actions and significant contributions changed the course of history. The men and women mentioned in this book are but a fraction of those that were instrumental in bringing about that change.
