On March 2, 1955, 15-year-old Claudette Colvin refused to give up her seat to a white woman on a Montgomery, Alabama bus. Rosa Parks did the same thing- nine months later. Colvin was inspired to act by her study of Black history and the U.S. Constitution. Thanks to the Zinn Education Project for introducing us to this civil rights pioneer. https://www.facebook.com/ZinnEducationProject
