One year ago today, the Silence Breakers were featured on the cover of @time. We are continually in awe of all those who have refused to be silent - from farm fields to the tech field to the floors of Senate hearings. Your bravery has paved the way for change. Thank you.
NYC friends: We’re hosting a free night of readings, comedy and performances about rage at @neuehouse on 12/10 featuring Rebecca Traister, author of “Good and Mad.” RSVP here: rsvp.neuehouse.com/TimesUpGoodAndMad
The Montgomery Bus Boycott began on this day in 1955, the Monday after Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man.
Rosa Parks was committed to fighting for justice long before her actions ignited a historic demonstration. She was an active member of the Montgomery NAACP, investigated sexual assault cases, and studied civil disobedience at the Highlander Folk School, which trained civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis.
