Civil War decimated the American landscape and population. A century later, nationwide media coverage of lynchings, police brutality, and racial discrimination created civil unrest not seen since the Civil War. Civil rights advocates and protesters turned to Martin Luther King Jr., a citizen activist, whose pacifism never wavered in the face of tyrannical racists determined to maintain a state of terror in African-American communities.
Created as a symbol of non violence, the peace symbol was a popular icon for many of Dr. King's followers. This silver necklace with peace charm is one of many items to honor the Nobel Peace Prize recipient and demonstrate your belief in the power of peace. Browse our Civil Rights Collection to accessorize your wardrobe with other fashionable jewelry reminiscent of the Civil Rights era.
