    They all possessed the courage and bravery to speak out against the majority.

    All fought (some physically) against slavery despite often being ridiculed or threatened.

    Some died for their beliefs.

    They all helped put an end to slavery through their actions and words.

    They were charismatic, open-minded individuals.

    Whoever said MLK and Rosa Parks is an idiot. They fought for Civil Rights and Parks didn't do anything but sit down. Slavery had been over for 100 years.
