    Everyone forgets how young the people who pushed the Civil Rights movement forward were. MLK was in his mid 20’s when the Montgomery bus boycott began

    Brave and Beautiful. I think of where I was in life at 19 and there is no way I was emotionally prepared to stand up for anything.

    The title made me think she was still in jail for something she was assumed innocent and still fighting for her freedom.

    But I guess she’s a women’s right activist or something?

    What’s sad is nowadays if someone is calling themselves a *freedom rider* I am going to assume they’re an anti-vax/anti-mask moron that is 3 trips to the grocery store away from ending up on /r/HermanCainAward.

    Always seems like people back then were more attractive, course maybe thats because they had such hard lives they were aged faster.
