On the 12th of January 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man.
She had the courage to fight this injustice with reason, clarity and very powerful use of the English language. A great Indigenous Woman Of The Anglosphere. (IWOTA)
She was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor and she and her example made life better for very many people.
That’s what I call living in The Word.
She inspires me as I face what seems to me, as a 64 year old white male, like an all-powerful sexist, racist, ageist modern tyranny
