You'd Better Ask Somebody, In Her Words, My Voice Frances Elizabeth Watkins-Harper
Yesterday and today I pay homage to Frances Elizabeth Watkins-Harper and today I continue that salute to this magnificent warrior for human dignity, human justice, social rights, and civil liberties for all people of color and sex. The more you learn about our ancestors who stood against the slings and arrows of injustice the more that you understand the wonderful bold, defiant spirit of the black people of color in this country past and present. So on this day, this Sunday I go back to the words of this powerful black woman of justice. She was indeed Rosa Parks before Rosa Park breathe life into the civil rights movement in 1955 when she sat down and refused to get up against injustice. We must always remember that our black history need never be a black mystery.
