The Trailer – ‘Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement: A Brief Introduction’ authored by Deidra R. Moore

“When you make an observation, you have an obligation.” ―M.K. Asante

Deidra R. Moore-Janvier, Esq.―African American wife, mother, attorney, and advocate for social change―did just that. It was in 2019 when the Library of Congress released a virtual portrait gallery titled “African American Activists of the 20th Century,” and Deidra made an observation. She realized that many of the notable images featured in the portrait gallery―of the people who sacrificed and dedicated their lives to fighting social injustices, discriminatory practices, racial segregation, and general inequality―featured people whose life stories, names, and images were dissipating from the minds of younger generations.

The stories of the sacrifices made by these prominent individuals whose conduct led to the freeing of the minds, bodies, and souls of enslaved Africans and their descendants were not being told as often as they should or have been, if told at all.
