Stories from Hartford's Grassroots
Steve have you seen this. A birthday party for Sam Colt. Its going to be a hell of a year. Thinking up a response but don’t want to get thrown off the birthday page too early in the game. https://www.facebook.com/200colt
This site is now listed on the Blogroll and Links at InZaneTimes.
Are you familiar with Claudette Colvin’s story? My friend, Phil Hoose wrote about her. She was the teenager who was arrested for not going to the back of the bus, 9 months before Rosa. Wonderfully written….I couldn’t put it down.
Hi Jill, In reference to Claudette Colvin,” she ” was the person who gave MLK the idea of the bus boycot ” two years later.” MLK used Rosa Parks because she was a secretary in his office. Claudette moved to New York and earned her health/nurse degree. I think she also had two sons. She stayed out of the news and wanted to live the quiet life she deserved.
Thank you Steve, for preserving the voice of Hartford Conn. Black youth. The message is an old one. Take the fight to the streets in a peaceful manner, Black lives will change our cities and Nation. Love conquers all.
When is your next walking tour? I would love to join one!
Thanks for all your great work,
