Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman poses for a photo with Claudette Colvin, known as “the other Rosa Parks.” At age 15, Colvin refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus in March 1955 — nine months before Rosa Parks. Her case was eventually taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court and led to the desegregation of the Alabama bus system. In an interview on Democracy Now!, Colvin, now 73, says learning about African-American history in school inspired her act. "I could not move because history had me glued to the seat," she recalls telling the bus driver and the police officer who came to arrest her. "It felt like Sojourner Truth’s hands were pushing down on one shoulder, and Harriet Tubman’s hand pushing down on another shoulder."
