Claudette Colvin. Another unsung Pioneer in Civil Rights, refusing to give up from her seat on a segregated bus 9 months before Rosa Parks would do so. Only 15 years old, she was arrested. Her case, part of Browder v. Gayle went all the way to the US Supreme Court that declared in 1956 that segregation on Public Transportation was unconstitutional. Her low profile and arrest made it difficult for her gain employment. Again she was only 15 years old. Children can be so brave where we can't.
