JEAN SEBERG (BECAUSE I THINK OF HER NOW AND THEN, LIKE JUST NOW)
Among other things besides being a movie star, she was a political activist who became one of J. Edgar Hoover's many fixations. He wanted to destroy her not just for the causes she championed, but for daring to have a Black Panther for a lover.
And using all the power of the FBI (that he was allowed to rule for many decades because of the dossiers he had on politicians' private lives they didn't want exposed) he did. She was a martyr in the cause of freedom and justice. I still miss her.
