American Civil Rights Leaders Quiz
The original principles of the U.S.A. gave voice to the idea that all men were created equal with certain unalienable rights. Of course, these words guided many Americans that would then rise to prominence over the ages.
Yet, there were still groups of people in America that the ideas of unalienable rights did not fully extend to on the basis of sheer prejudice. It was a conscious effort by some of America’s founders to not include everyone in their designs for their new nation. So, it became necessary for other founders and future American activists to take a stand and demand equality.
An educated populace began to grow more and more in favor of including more people into the American union. In the process, they ended up making the United States a place that began to live up to its original mission statement. Civil rights are simply the rights that citizens possess in a country.
In this quiz, we will ask you about those brave men and women who fought the status quo in order to extend civil rights to groups that had previously been excluded from American society.
These can be feminist leaders, those who spoke out on behalf of racial justice, or even historic individuals whose example helped break the boundaries that divided Americans.
As much as to test, this quiz is meant to inform. So, we hope you come out of it knowing something new.
