She passed away at 101 yesterday. While we frequently post about celebrities, I felt it was important to recognize this woman. If you do not know her name, take a few minutes to read about the accomplishments of this civil rights icon.
Equal rights for others does not mean fewer rights for you. It's not pie.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time and it really annoys the pig.
Ignorance of other peoples history has been the downfall of America's history. It is bad, that now, they are looking at other peoples history as meaningful source of what made their history. Stealing is a reason to say that one is better than another. It is too bad. people have to die or a movies be made about them, before people stand up, and applaud them. Imagine creating and discovering a life saving device or treatment, only to die for the lack of using the device for oneself, because of the color of their skin.
Yep, they are Amazing, Awesome and have many Accomplishments to prove it.
Sister Mary Antona Ebo another civil rights advocate (who also happened to be from St. Louis), died on November 11th at the age of 93. She walked for civil rights in Selma and was active in social justice her entire life. We're losing SO MUCH history as people pass away.
