transportationnation:

She was arrested for refusing to move to the back of the bus — nine months before Rosa Parks. Today, she was honored for her “tremendous contributions to the civil rights movement.”
When asked how she worked up the courage to defy the bus driver in 1955 Montgomery, Colvin said: “What gave me the courage? I was a 15-year old!”
(via Claudette Colvin, a Hero of the Civil Rights Movement - WNYC)

Can we talk about why we know the name Rosa Parks but not Claudette Colvin? She was an unmarried, pregnant teenager which made her a questionable choice for the face of the movement. So many different people were a part of the Civil Rights Movement and it’s important to acknowledge who they were and think about why or why not they were deemed valuable enough to be “knowable”.
