The American political and social landscape changed dramatically over the course of the 20th century. Social change did not happen as a natural course of history; countless individuals and groups labored to bring about the rights and privileges to which we’ve grown accustomed today. Some individuals stand above the rest and have become legends of social justice. Peter Dreier’s new book about social movements tells the stories of "The Greatest 100 Americans of the 20th Century" and offers a look at the emerging leaders of the 21st century.
