Who is Ruby McCollum? Why do you need to know? More importantly, why has this been kept so quiet in the legal narratives on women's rights and civil rights?
As you read this remember this is not ancient history, it happened to real women over generations.

We know about Nat Turner and his insurrection. He was one of the few that has been given limited space in regular history curriculum.

However there were other insurrections that met with some success and possibly on a larger scale than Nat Turner's rebellion.
In fact the slaves were not as passive as American history would lead us to believe. I may do a series on this, but for now here's one such example.

Reality check for those that think black people make this up.
Here's the results of driving while black.

Let me add this. I went to several site to see what the reaction would be. Crickets. Absolute silence.
When these things happen to black people the comment section is full of people calling us thugs, we must have done something, we're animals. Even as we are shot down by police right on camera with our hands up the comment sections are full of support for those that deliberately do harm to us.

Now here is a judge making a ruling, actually adjudicating a case dealing with blatant racist cops and nobody has a thing to say.

Flint Michigan and now a city in Ohio (no telling at this time how many more) are plagued with lead in their water. With all the modern technologies in this modern times a business decision was made that allowed this to happen to those consumers. Though there are multiple layers of complicity leading up to the governor's office itself, what this all boils down to is a lack of respect for the consumer and a lack of leadership handling something as important and basic as having clean water.

I now harken you back to the year 1888 and 1900 to introduce you to Sarah Gammon Bickford, born a slave.
Take a good look at her life and find out why a former slave demonstrated more leadership, care for the consumer, more intelligence and more business acumen than the governor of Michigan today.
And while you're at it, enjoy learning about other aspects of her life.

I keep checking in. I am continually astounded by the things I find and read. Enlightenment is a wonderful thing.  It is refreshing to learn and hear positive things.
