Hope this thread passes the muster - it's sort of a news story ......
Yesterday was the anniversary of Ms. Parks refusal to give up her seat in the black section to a white person - way to go Rosa - Dec 1, 1955 was the date
It's been sorta understood that Rosa was a peaceful, quiet, unassuming type
The author of this piece says otherwise, that she:
in fact she was a defiant and aggressive woman - a militant really who spend her life and over 7 decades as a human rights activist
She campaigned for George McGovern ......
I didn't know any of this - and it's sorta cool
makes here more of a real hero vs. an accidental one
