Marie Louise Bottineau Baldwin (1863-1952), Chippewa lawyer; she was the first Native American student and first woman of color to graduate from the Washington College of Law, in 1914.

Because she was a fluent French speaker, she offered her skills as a translator to the War Department during WWI.

Bayard Rustin: An American Hero No Longer Forgotten. Jailed for not entering the draft. Went to India to learn more about the non-violence movement. Organized, participated in, and was arrested for the original freedom ride in 1947 (before the 60s rides). Advised MLKJ on non-violence. Chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, he kept in the background as he'd been reviled for his homosexuality by some within (and without) the movement.
