Life in the United States today is vastly different from anything the original Founders could have imagined in the late 1700s, posits journalist Juan Williams, who cites the formerly radical notion of an African-American president of the United States, or a woman as Secretary of State. Among the modern-day pioneers Williams profiles here are Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Billy Graham, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Ronald Reagan, finding that these figures honor the Founders' original vision. Surveying more recent revolutions, Williams also considers Betty Friedan's feminist crusade, and the leaders of the gay community who refused to back down during the Stonewall Riots.
