The paper looks at how the law changed from the middle nineteenth century - when African-Americans and Native-Americans, were literally not designated as human beings by the courts of the day - to the late twentieth century, when African-Americans (and other minority groups) were not only seen as full-fledged humans and American citizens, but were even permitted to marry others from outside their race. The paper also discusses a number of courageous women who made a difference by using their lives to speak out against racial hatred and inequality. The paper also considers their legacies and attempts to place them within the context of their times. In the end, the paper is a reminder that laws change slowly over time but, without brave people to push them along, they may not change at all.
