Rencontre avec Emilie Plateau
- | Online
On Saturday, October 23rd at 11:00 a.m.(Manitoba), meet French artist Emilie Plateau. Discover her book "Noire",
the unsung life of Claudette Colvin.
A few months before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, kicking off the U.S. civil rights movement, making headlines around he world and becoming an enduring symbol of the fight for dignity and equality, another young black woman refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was the wrong person at the right time, and so History did not choose her. Her name was Claudette Colvin and this is her story.
