Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, 1961.
Joan, a 19 year old Freedom Rider, was sentenced to two months in prison for her involvement in the integration of a Jackson, Mississippi bound train.  She served more than the required two months because each addition day reduced her $200 fine by $3.
In the Fall of 1961, Joan transferred from Duke University to historically black Tougaloo Southern Christian College because she felt integration should be a two way street.  
Today Joan is a retired teaching assistant living in Virginia and mother to five sons.  After the 2008 election she brought her Obama pin to the grave of Medgar Evers.  

Everything about this.

Gabby #Giffords Update of the Day: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, whose painful road to recovery after being critically wounded during last year’s Tucson shooting was recently documented on ABC’s 20/20, announced today that she will be resigning from Congress in order to focus on getting better.
“I have more work to do on my recovery, so to do what is best for Arizona, I will step down this week,” Giffords said in a statement. She will not seek reelection.
Prior to the shooting, Giffords had been a member of the House of Representatives for just under four years. A replacement for Giffords will be chosen by the people of Arizona through a special primary and general election, to be scheduled by Governor Jan Brewer.
Giffords, who said she intends to resume the “Congress On Your Corner” event interrupted by the shooting, promised a return to public service. “I will return,” she said, ”and we will work together for Arizona and this great country.”
Watch her resignation video below:

This poor woman is going through hell because SOME PEOPLE (#McCainsFolly) liked to play with violent language in a pathetic attempt to attract attention and profit from it.  Giffords puts her state’s welfare first; this is what true patriots do.  I hope she makes a full recovery and comes back to her seat in Congress. <3 #Hero

NSFW - no joke. Rude & unapologetic.

Contrarian by nature; Democrat by choice. #p2 #p21 #CTL #Obama2012

Together we MUST take back the power wrongfully seized by banks, corporations, and the corrupt politicians they fund. #OWS #99

#Justice4Trayvon is the other tumblr I branched from this one so I could track the developments in the #Trayvon Martin case.
