Claudette Colvin- the first person to be arrested for resisting bus segregation, nine months before Rosa Parks. Her testimony lead to the end of bus segregation in Montgomery and the state of Alabama. The NAACP leaders of that time did not publicly acknowledge her pioneering efforts because she was a pregnant unwed teenager at the time and they felt it would tarnish the movement.... ‪#‎morethanamonthamovement‬ ‪#‎unsunghero‬

"...as both the race and feminist issues intensified in the 1840-1850s, it was inevitable that black and white women abolitionists would come to a parting of the ways due not only to white racism but sex issues as well. Black women abolitionists were already feminists, but when it came to a question of priorities, race for them came first. It was the issue of race that sparked their feminism.

And as Sojourner Truth's message implied, black women had already proven their inherent strengths - both physical and psychological. They had undergone a baptism of fire and emerged intact."
