I hope [my students] learned that the civil rights movement was a movement of ordinary people, many of them just like these young people who were sitting in my class.  They should not believe that it was all magical figures like Martin Luther King.  People like King helped immeasurably.  But it wasn't all Martin Luther Kings.  It was mostly ordinary people who did this, and these students are ordinary people, and they can do the same thing.  They can rise to these heights themselves.
