Haha same. I couldn't remember Rosa Parks' name at the time but it gave me a point for "segregation".

I didn't get the Gulf War, a conflict that I knew about of course. I do wonder if it would have been possible for the exact
same picture (in terms of what we perceive) to have been taken at other 20th century wars.

The only one I missed was the Tiananmen Square Protests, 1989.
Never even heard of it before.

It gave me a point for writing Martin Luther King.

Not really, the whole point of that one was that the Iraqis set fire to the oil wells as they retreated, hence the enormous plumes of thick black smoke.
