CBC Members Share Their Black History Inspirations
Rep. Joyce Beatty (Ohio)
When I am fighting today’s battles for justice and equality for all, I often look to Rosa Parks for inspiration and I gain my second wind. Because of a single act of bravery that helped fuel a national movement to end racial segregation, her life is a shining example of what one woman can do through courage and perseverance. I know that because of Rosa Parks’ civil rights activism, my voice will be one of change that will continue the fight for voting rights and equal rights and to end discrimination wherever it exists.
