Frank Sinatra was a big activist in the civil rights movement, refusing to stay at hotels that didn't allow "Blacks". Even using his mafia ties to help get labor unions behind JFK because he knew they shared the same opinions on equal rights. Who knew?
Some people think that all Martin Luther jr. Doing was for civil rights. I personally believe that he was for a thing that is fading year by year. Freedom for EVERYONE no matter your race, religion ECt.
