Mahatma Gandhi:

Civil Rights Acitvist

Gandhi became a leader of India's independence movement, organizing boycotts against British institutions in peaceful forms of civil disobedience. Gandhi did not believe in violence, but he believed in rights for everyone, including himself. Because of his color he was forced to sit on the back of the train, but he refused so he was throne off of the train. He promoted these rights with the people who needed them not above the people. The people were encouraged by this, therefore creating more results. Gandhi went to the extent of fasting until conflicts were solved. Mahatma Gandhi inspired civil rights movements and freedom around the world.
