Sometimes, young people have a hard time understanding the courage and sacrifice that was necessary for them to have the things that they have today. Women like this one are the reason that we can go to school where we want, work where we want and live where we want. That’s why these icons get to live forever.
Thelma McWilliams Glass was the ultimate patriot. She had faith in America, even when the country was doing everything it could to keep her life in a cage. She stood up against tyranny and did the right thing even when it would have been convenient to sit down and run for cover. She was an educator who took the time to teach young people the principles that would guide them in the next generation, and she is one of the people who gives our nation it’s soulful commitment to equality.
We salute you Ms. Glass. BlackBlueDog.com tells the story:
