Celebrating accomplishments of African-Americans. Elizabeth Jennings Graham was a teacher and Civil Rights Activist. She refused to get off a New York Streetcar in 1854. She had to be physically forced off by the conductor and a police officer. Her act of courage happened more than 100 years before Rosa Parks. She then sued the streetcar company and won!
Slavery here in the United States was not as a pretty picture as you see here. A white child was using one of the African’s, who were used as a slave, in order to ride like a horse.
