    Jim Crow is the name for a system of laws regarding segregation, not a real person.

    Thurgood Marshall was a justice of the Supreme Court and died a natural death.

    Malcolm X was assassinated by Black Muslims in, I believe, 1965. The movie about him by Spike Lee is quite good.

    Both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated in 1968.
