Thank you Rosa.
Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

Seems someone was always trying to take advantage of her, even to the final years of her life.
What she did was very courageous, and it's proof that one person can change the world!
She's in a better place now.

She was one hell of a brave woman who caused some tremendous changes for the better to be made. Here is hoping many more will step up and try to fill her shoes.One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

I want to echo all that, she had a full life and that is all one can hope for. Lived to 92.

Her death brought back memories of being a kid in the 50's and going everywhere on KTL buses in Knoxville Tennessee. We would see those signs saying "Colored Sit in Rear" and not think anything of it. The shame is how we can become numb to injustice and not even see it. I wish I could have met her and can't say that about many folks.

imagine. a black woman in the deep south, 1955. id like to find a transcript of the event. she knew 100% she was in the right and refused to back down. if all of us did this all the time the world would be such a better place; as it is those of us who do it in the end do make it so for others. the aim of all of us should be to live up to such a standard. cj, whats been up the last few days? lol
