Claudette Colvin is a civil rights activist who, before Rosa Parks, refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. She was arrested and became one of four plaintiffs in Browder v. Gayle, which ruled that Montgomery’s segregated bus system was unconstitutional. Colvin later moved to New York City and worked as a nurse’s aide. She retired in 2004.” (via https://www.biography.com/.amp/activist/claudette-colvin) #BlackHistoryMonth
