Happy Birthday Aurelia Browder

We re-member you Aurelia Shines Browder Coleman!

Aurelia Shines Browder Coleman was the name used to begin legal proceedings in Montgomery, Alabama against discrimination on public buses. In April 1955, Browder was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white rider, eight months before Rosa Parks and a month after the arrest of Claudette Colvin. She is important to me because his-story wants us to believe Rosa was the sole brave woman to begin this resistance. Montgomery had a community of women resisters! Thank you Aurelia!

There are no safe places for artists to hide when inequality and injustice exist. Let’s continue to create and present the world with “the possibilities” of love and freedom.
