The nature of the question is a bit confusing and perhaps clearer articulation could be needed.  When we examine the facets of the Civil Rights Movement, there are many different components to it.  Part of the reason for this was because the movement did much in way of seeking to bring voice to the different experiences and narratives of individuals.  The rebelling against Jim Crow legislation of segregation in the South was one part of the movement.  Figures like Rosa Parks and Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Council were prominent in this struggle.  Another part of this movement was located in the Northern part of the nation with thinkers such as Malcolm X and the Black Muslims being formative voices in articulating the condition of Northern racist practices, which was more covert and subtle than its Southern Counterpart.  Within both of these dimensions arose a young element, where youth leaders started to emerge such as Anne Moody, Stokely Carmichael, James Meredith. and the Black Panthers, with each embracing different approaches to solving the challenges of racism in America.
