Abstract: Ladybug Under the Leaf: The African American Women in the Civil Rights Movement

Mentor: Terrance MacMullan, Ph.D., Philosophy

With his courage, diligence, beliefs and devotion to his community, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has become the symbol for African American's struggle for freedom and he is one of the most famous figures associated with the civil rights movement. In addition, Malcolm X, Andrew Young, and Jesse Jackson are also well-known leaders, who have been recognized for important contributions to the movement. However, the significant contributions made by black women within this movement, women such as Septima Clark, Ella Baker, and Fannie Lou Hamer, are still not familiar to many. Although these women were integral to this movement and this nation's progress towards justice, their experiences and influences have not been observed by some scholars. This work will strive to recall, praise, and analyze their contributions, not only to racial justice, but to the very ideals of equality and freedom. It also explores how these women used legal leverage effectively along with their community values to transform social policy. Additionally, this work will offer some small measure of long-overdue acknowledgement for their contributions as organizers and activists. Furthermore, it will reexamine the ideological women leaders and organizations of the civil rights movement
