Wilson Daily Times, 3 July 1943.
Meet Irene Barron, American hero.
Twelve years before Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a Montgomery, Alabama, bus, Irene Barron sat down in the white section of a Wilson bus and held her ground. Barron’s action followed James Parker‘s similar refusal by three months and suggests concerted action.
Do you know of Irene Barron? I am seeking more information about this freedom fighter.
Thanks to J. Robert Boykin III for the clipping.
