Robert McCullough

Age: 64

civil-rights protester who, along with eight other students, chose to serve 30 days in prison doing hard labor rather than pay a $100 fine for requesting to be served at a whites-only lunch counter in 1961 in South Carolina. Their defiance changed the course of the civil-rights movement, inspiring hundreds of others to choose “jail, no bail.”
