Here here, well said. Well written. Thank you for shining a light on a largely Hidden Figure like Ms Colvin — #shero.
It’s comforting to know that she knows her role was important to the movement, and she is not bitter about not having the spotlight. I too only discovered her story outside of formal education on the Civil Rights Movement, and I have some understanding of the politics around not promoting her as the ‘poster’ girl for the movement at that time. It’s brilliant that we get to celebrate her contribution now, and show our appreciation. *salutes Ms Colvin*
