Since Black History Month has just started, I should post some history that didn't make it to the history books, one of my well-noted works I started when I was a regular at the other website. I have the originals and plenty of material, and there's always more to add.
Brewman, see if you can find the names of those who were arrested for not giving up their seat on the bus before Rosa Parks. Thanks in advance.
Fire1, not to be facetious, but that is a bit of a broad category. The fight for equal access to transportation, i.e., not just on buses, went on before Rosa Parks, and, no thanks to our censored history, most have been forgotten and/or not written about. However, I do have articles on a couple of the more noted figures, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Jennings in the 1850's and Claudette Colvin in 1954, right before Rosa Parks. Was one of those what you had in mind?
