The Women Who Said No.
While we commemorate the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the legacy of Rosa Parks, we cannot forget the sacrifices of the many thousands of Black Americans who walked the extra mile to secure the freedoms that we enjoy today.
Among them were names as much deserving of recognition as Rosa Parks, but names we may never find in a textbook on American history.
Meet the Black women who said "No."

I. False Greatness
MYLo, forbear to call him bless'd
That only boasts a large estate,
Should all the treasures of the west
Meet, and conspire to make him great:
I know thy better thoughts, I know
Thy reason can't descend so low:
Let a broad stream, with golden sands,
Through all his meadows roll,
He's but a wretch, with all his lands,
That wears a narrow soul.
