WRITE ME DOWN IN HISTORY
“’Thy kingdom come…’” The fifteen-year-old girl huddled on the musty cot, gazing through jail cell bars. Her arms ached from brutal policemen’s hands, gauging and yanking. “’…Thy will be done…’”
“Stand strong,” whispered Sojourner Truth.
“You shall overcome,” sang Harriet Tubman.
Now in her 90’s, Claudette Colvin recalls that fateful Wednesday, March 2, 1955, when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white woman.
“If she’d been an elderly white woman, I might have given her my seat.”
Few know or remember it was a child who inspired Rosa Parks and led her people out of bondage.
