You've Never Seen The Civil Rights Movement Captured Like This

All it needed was a hashtag, apparently.

Another day, another hashtag.

On Monday, #CivilRightsTwitter emerged to jokingly explore what social media could have been like had it existed during the Civil Rights Movement back in the 1960s.

Twitter users are sharing photos of Civil Rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and Angela Davis, with fictional quotes in 2015's style and lingo. The tweets, full of "Netflix & chill" and Drake references, have taken over Twitter.

See some below: 

But some on the Twitter-verse aren't 100 percent on board with the hashtag. 

What are your thoughts about #civilrightstwitter?
