On King Day we honor not a man, but a movement.

This King Day let us remember the many women who led the Civil Rights Movement with their vision, courage, tenacity, strength, strategic thinking, and love.

These sheroes include Claudette Colvin, Rosa Parks, JoAnn Robinson, Septima Clark, Daisy Bates, Ella Baker, Diane Nash, Dorothy Height, Coretta Scott King, Fannie Lou Hamer, Marian Wright Edelman, Melba Patillo Beals, Autherine Lucy, Virginia Durr, Victoria Gray Adams, Dolores Huerta, Ruby Bridges, Anne Braden, Angela Davis, Anne Moody, Jean Wiley, Rita Schwerner, Ericka Huggins, and many, many, more.

Let us honor all the women and men who risked their lives and livelihoods to transform our nation by continuing their sacred work for justice.
