Starting at the historic marker identifying Alabama's Indigenous people, to the historic Riverfront, through the streets of Montgomery, and ending at the brand new mural dedicated to Claudette Colvin’s life. Michelle will show you how girls and women have always been essential to America’s progression towards racial equality.
