To celebrate Black History Month the Library of Congress has published a Flickr album of widely requested photos of Black activists; important figures like Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X, who paved the way for generations to come. The collection includes 39 portraits of African American civil rights activists from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The following is a small list of some of the most influential leaders you’ll find in the Library of Congress’ collection.
