Events were a group of repressed individuals were accepted back in society?


I'm searching for historical events where a group of people that was previously repressed, (seen as less, or even murdered for their ethnicity/colour/social status/parentage etc.) were accepted back in society. I'd be very happy with every single answer I can get!

Early Christians were persecuted, then they became more accepted

Jews in several European countries. They were expelled in the middle ages and allowed back. In Holland, for example, they were expelled from particular cities in the 1440's and later allowed back.

The Roman Empire is a good example of conquered people arising from the ranks and becoming emperors and senators. After the reign of Commodus and the on-set of the Age of Crisis, Roman Emperors came from all over the Empire from North Africa to Syria to the Balkans.

There are countless examples (luckily upholding the good faith of humanity amidst all those misdeeds), but the first one that sprang to my mind was the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre in France 1572 and how the Huguenots was accepted in neighbouring countries.

Homosexuals, Jews, the mentally ill, unmarried mothers and their children, Catholics, pagans, women, people with tatoos and piercings, Royalists, Atheists, the physically disabled, suicide survivors, witches, Protestants, the diseased, criminals, people of African descent....All these have been repressed, seen as less or even murdered for who they are. In my society these are all now accepted as equals, and in theory are treated as such.

As far as I can see from the OP, this thread is about actual historical instances. You do provide a functioning list as regarding minority groups persecuted in the past but generally accepted in Western society today. However the interesting bit regarding this thread is naming exactly when and by whom each of these groups were accepted by a society, any society, for the first time.

I would be very interested in knowing that information as well.
