In celebration of Black History Month, we commemorate two courageous women who did not stand down but stood up for justice. They were murdered for their activities and/or roles during America’s iconic Civil Rights Movement.
“In Aug. 5, 1965, Alberta O. Jones, a civil rights activist and the first woman to become a prosecutor in Louisville was beaten in the head with a brick until she lost consciousness and thrown into the Ohio River, where she drowned.” — The Washington Post
