Ella Baker, Her Words Were "Supernatural"
Ella Baker passed to glory December 13, 1986. What a courageous life this woman lead. I mean how many times did Ella Baker defy death yet continue her struggle against bigotry. She was born on December 13, 1903, and she passed to glory on December 13, 1986. Those 83 years defined the highest levels of commitment and determination. When I think of black ancestral leadership in the Twentieth Century the name that is amongst the greatest is Ella Baker. Celebrate Ella Baker Day, she deserves a place of distinction and honors for contribution to American History.
