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 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.
