Meet Claudette Colvin, another #UnsungBlackHero. Students Savannah ’17 and Soleil ’17 have brought this #BlackHistoryMonth project to our community to introduce important, influential, and inspirational women of African-American history to our community.
Claudette Colvin (born Sept. 5, 1939)
◉ On March 2, 1955, a full nine months before Rosa Parks’ famous arrest, Claudette Colvin was dragged from a Montgomery bus by two police officers, arrested and taken to an adult jail to be booked.
◉ She was only 15 years old and was the first person to be arrested for defying bus segregation in Montgomery. Her arrest and her story has long since been forgotten, but it provided the spark for the Black community in Montgomery that ultimately led to Parks’ actions, the bus boycott, and the Supreme Court ruling to end segregation on buses.
◉ Claudette Colvin was one of five plaintiffs in the legal action to put a stop to Montgomery’s segregated transportation system. It was their case — Browder v. Gayle — that a district court and, eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court would use to strike down segregation on buses. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court on December 17, 1956. Three days later, the Supreme Court issued an order to Montgomery and the state of Alabama to end bus segregation, and the Montgomery Bus Boycott was called off.
