To mark Black History Month and the birthday of Rosa Parks - "The only tired I was, was tired of giving in" - we honor Recy Taylor, the young black mother abducted and gang raped in 1944 Alabama by six white boys who were never indicted. Taylor was one of too many unnamed, unheard black women victimized in the Jim Crow South by a common "weapon of terror." But uncommonly, she spoke up. Her rape prompted an NAACP campaign for justice led by a tough women's rights activist - Rosa Parks.
