Meet Houston Woman Who Refused To Give Up Her Seat In 1955


A few days after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus, Gertrude Jane Holliday Stone had a similar experience. While traveling home from college, she declined to give up her seat on a train and move to the Jim Crow coach even when her belongings were removed and police officers were called. Kelly and Pilot Pens were inspired by Gertrude's bravery and award her $1,000.
