What Does D-Day, MLK JR and Tennessee Williams have in common?
NO, not that D-Day.
The other D-Day.
The forgotten D-Day
. May 2nd 1963 The Children's March
. The D-Day
that was orginized by C.O.R.E's
own James Bevel
C.O.R.E's Most famous voice was MLK, but there was another member just off stage right (Tennesse Williams
cast her on stage
in his 1955 Broadway masterpiece, and again as the same character in the 1958 film
), working closely with Dr. King. In 1963 she was arrested
in a freedom walk, jailed, made an example of, and sentenced to six months hard labor for "Endangering the Customs and Mores of the People of Alabama". Her lawyer, Fred Gray
, was the first African-American lawyer to represent a white woman
south of the Mason–Dixon Line.
She was typecast
. Later in life she got work on The Flying Nun
She is Canadian. She is a Quaker. She is that woman
. Her story if full of small discrepancies
, and missing information
. She, along with the Children's March
forgotten, but Sister Woman is Alive
