They decided that if Rosa lost the case the boycott would extend beyond her trial date indefinitely to organize organiz a longer bus boycott the group elected one of their most trusted team members to spearhead the movement a twenty six year old Baptist Reverend by the name of Dr Martin Luther King Junior together with the help of the N. double. ACP He formed the Montgomery Improvement Association. Their goal was to keep the boycott going until the status. Quo Changed that day forty two year old Rosa parks stepped into the stuffy halls of the Montgomery County courthouse. She was greeted by a bustling crowd of around around five hundred local supporters cheering her on her attorney was a man named Fred Gray and accomplished lawyer preacher and and activist who graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of law he was a go getter with a strong passion for civil rights in fact upon moving to Alabama. He said he was ready to destroy everything segregated but given the racist laws in place. Rosa never stood a chance the entire trial lasted all of thirty minutes during which Rosa was convicted of disorderly conduct and and violating the local bus ordinance she was fine ten dollars plus four dollars in courtroom fees approximately one hundred and fifty dollars in today's currency all the crime of refusing to vacate a bus seat the N. double.

The boycott struck in early in devastating blow. The buses soon became something of a laughing stock public buses sat at the side of the road completely empty except for the drivers ars but the boycott also had an adverse effect on Rosa and her husband a week into the protest. Rosa was fired from her seamstress job he'd held for years. No reason was given about Rosa suspected. It was because of her involvement in the boycott the next week Raymond also lost his job after talking about the boycott at work but the setbacks only made the parks family all the more more resolute as weeks passed the city of Montgomery began to feel the financial impact of the boycott bus fares bears were a reliable source of income for any city and now with the boycott in full swing that revenue stream was drying up on January anuary thirtieth nineteen fifty six the fifty seventh day of the boycott. The home of Dr Martin Luther King was bombed to buy white radicals two days later Edgar. Nixon's house was also bombed but once more the black community refused is to be intimidated in the face of property damage and violence the boycott continued meanwhile roses legal troubles proliferators liberated the city of Montgomery had criminalized boycotts and on February twenty first nineteen fifty six. She was arrested once again again for her role in the movement. Her supporters once again bailed her out but she knew that the fight wasn't over yet six months after the boycott began roses attorney. Fred Gray finally managed to gain an audience with the US District Court for the Middle District Straight Valla Bama in June nineteen fifty six fred argued that state bus segregation laws were unconstitutional and violated the rights of his community on June fifth nineteen fifty-six the three judges announced their ruling two to one in favor of Fred Gray. The fight still wasn't over the city of Montgomery filed an appeal that took the case to the United States Supreme Court on November Thirteenth Nineteen nineteen fifty-six over the next month. Fred continued to fight for his community and on December seventeenth nineteen fifty six he emerged victorious the Supreme Court rejected the appeal and ruled that bus segregation was illegal at the time roses case and the accompanying boycott was the largest successful black civil rights action in US history on December nineteenth nineteen fifty six the supreme court's written order arrived at the Montgomery Court House. Segregation of buses was officially officially illegal in the city. The boycott ended the next day and Montgomery's black citizens resumed using the buses after three hundred and eighty one days of walking and taking cabs for her bravery and her vision Rosa came to be known as the mother of the civil rights movement unfortunately even after the boycott ended she continued to face further harassment and threats Rosa and her husband Raymond grew to feel so oh unsafe they eventually relocated to Detroit Michigan in nineteen fifty seven and settled near Rosa's brother Sylvester MacAulay while in Detroit Rosa became an administrative aide in the Detroit Office of Congressman John Conyers Junior. She stayed there from nineteen sixty four to to her retirement in nineteen eighty eight regarding her work at this time she said I would have to take long of a minute to and give my whole synopsis of my life but I want to let you know that are all of us. Uh should be free and equal and have equal opportunity and that is what I'm trying to instill and and curry and inspire young people to reach the high for ten zero throughout the nineteen seventies Rosa Parks donated most of her money to civil rights organizations like the N. double. ACP and witnessed the establishment of a number of equitable laws including the Fair Housing Act and the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty eight the nineteen seventies also proved to be some of the most personally heartbreaking years of her life on August nineteenth nineteen seventy seven her husband died of throat cancer a few months later in November nineteen seventy seven her brother also died of cancer mindful of her husband's in the ability to receive a formal education during his lifetime Rosa co-founded the Rosa Rosa l Parks Scholarship Foundation for college bound high school seniors and the Roseanne Raymond Parks Institute for self development to serve Detroit's youth on October twenty fourth two thousand five at the age of ninety two Rosa Parks passed away in her apartment in Detroit Michigan she was laid to rest in the US capital and honor typically reserved for statesmen and military leaders in fact she was the first woman to ever receive such a distinction at her funeral over thirty thousand people passed by her coffin to pay respects and on December first two thousand five most major cities in the United States left seats empty on public public buses to commemorate roses incredible act of civil disobedience roses dedication to community and equality extended far beyond a refusal to give up her seat on a bus she was an advocate for black people and women everywhere and helped catapult the civil rights movement to the mainstream thanks to her courage. Rosa parks became a role model and icon and for women of Color as she explained I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up knowing what must be done does away with fear.

Today we're discussing. Rosa parks dubbed the mother of the Civil Civil Rights movement. She's most famous today for refusing to give up a seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama. Her Act of Resistance Against Racist Segregation Segregation launched a boycott that proved pivotal to the fight for racial equality but Rosas activism extended beyond bus protests. It's an active member of the N. double. ACP Rosa championed black victims of sexual assault organized acts of civil disobedience and founded educational initiatives for disadvantaged students of Color Rosa Parks was born Rosa Louise as MacAulay on February fourth nineteen thirteen INTAS Gigi Alabama her early life was unstable as her parents separated when Rosa it was only two roses birthplace in Gigi insured. She grew up in the center of the nascent civil rights movement prominent Black Intellectual Booker. T. Washington was active there as soon as Rosa was old enough to understand issues of race. She was hyper aware of the inequality as well every Sunday she worshiped at the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Historically Black denomination initially founded to promote an abolitionist geology and then later devoted to racial equality. When Rosa was eleven years old she moved with her mother and brother to Montgomery Alabama Alabama where her grandparents lived there. She continued her harsh education about racial politics by the early nineteen twenties the white supremacist hate group that Ku Klux Klan was increasingly active for a decade after the civil war the K. K. K. had terrorized people of color color in the southern United States the hate group had declined to the point of nearly disbanding in the late eighteen hundreds but white supremacy experienced a resurgence surgeons in response to the growing number of immigrants in the US by the time Rosa was a young child the KKK boasted more than four million Leeann active members fearful of racially motivated attacks each evening roses grandfather laid a loaded shotgun across his lap APP and slept in a rocking chair near the front door eager to help defend her home and family. Rosa took to sleeping on the floor beside him. You're so when Rosa Parks was eleven. Her mother enrolled her in the private segregated Montgomery Industrial School for girls. It was the best education available to a black girl in the city despite her young age Rosa had to work to pay for her tuition. She took a janitorial job at the school pool cleaning up rooms after classes and every day she saw little reminders of the inequality she faced the white students had a bus Rosa and other black students didn't she walked to school every day. Even in the winter in her autobiography biography Rosa Parks My story Rosa wrote. I'd see the bus pass every day but to me. That was a way of life we we had no choice but to accept. What was the custom. The bus was among the first ways I realized there was a black world and a white world hold on during her walks. Rosa often passed by white children and adults who would shout racial slurs at her unprovoked. Some children even tossed pasta rocks at her as she walked by to cope with the stress. Rosa found comfort in her religious beliefs. She reminded herself that her bullies were simply lost sinners and prayed for them while they harassed her. She knew she couldn't do anything more concrete to defend herself because the police wouldn't look kindly on a black girl fighting white people even if they'd started it. Rosa attended high school at the laboratory school at the historically Black Alabama state teachers college but unfortunately she had to drop out a year later to help care for her ailing grandmother shortly after Rose's Rose's grandmother died her mother to grew. Ill now the family's primary caretaker. Rosa needed to work to support them and provide medical medical care education was out of the question at least until someone new entered Rosa's life and encouraged her to go back to school in Nineteen thirty one when Rosa was eighteen a mutual friend introduced her to a twenty eight year old barber named Raymond Parks. It was clear during their very first meeting that Raymond was romantically interested in her but Rosa didn't return his affection one of her biggest reservations nations lay in the fact that Raymond was a light skinned black man Rosa didn't find him physically attractive and she also doubted that a man and who could pass for white could really understand her day to day struggles as a dark skinned black woman however as their friendship blossomed Rosa learned that Raymond was passionate civil rights advocate and a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People War N. double. ACP She was surprised to find that although Raymond dressed well and was an intelligent and thoughtful speaker he barely attended school at all aw thanks to segregation in time a romance blossomed between Raymond and Rosa and they were married on December eighteenth nineteen thirty thirty two when she was nineteen and he was twenty nine Raymond Encourage Rosa to pursue the education he'd never ever had and with his support. She returned to high school and finally completed her degree. Soon after Rosa got a job as a seamstress at a department store you're while Raymond continued on his work with the N. double. ACP although Rosa and Raymond shared beliefs about equal rights initially she kept her her distance from the organization N. Double ACP members feared reprisal from white supremacists and they regularly came to meetings heavily armed should did they need to defend themselves on one occasion. Raymond volunteered to host a meeting at his in Rosa's house shaken by the number of men who arrived lived armed Rosa walked out of the House and sat on the porch hunched over with her head between her knees while the men inside discussed politics Sushi's sat alone in the dark waiting and fear for the first bullets to fly in the moment Rosa was paralyzed by fear violence silence but long-term she grew increasingly frustrated with these sexist assumption that her husband could take risks and join the N. double. ACP while she she needed to be shielded from it so in nineteen forty three thirty year old Rosa finally joined for herself once again sexism reared its head at the N. double ACP as the only woman to attend on her first night. Rosa was tasked with taking taking meeting notes. She was elected secretary at that same meeting but she soon had the opportunity to advocate for women and Black people alike has the chapter began to examine the racial inequality in how police investigated sexual assaults. It was all too common at the time for black men to be falsely accused of raping white women if those men were lucky they'd go to court but still have to plead their case before racist judges judges and juries if they were unlucky. The accused were often lynched by white mobs before their trials began black. Women men also suffered from unjust investigations when they filed reports. The police rarely took their cases seriously rape survivors of have color had few opportunities to pursue justice especially if their attacker was white a particularly egregious case involved a woman named re resc- Taylor on the evening of September third nineteen forty four was walking home from church with two friends when a group of white men abducted abducted her and gang raped her after the assault REC- reported to the police what had happened her friend corroborated the account a few hours later a police officer found the rapists and asked if they had an alibi imen- confess that they'd raped reecey and the police halted the investigation there without pressing charges news of this crime and the polices inaction made it back to the N.

How Moonshine Works

"First use of Moonshine the English word goes back to the fifteenth century literally meaning shine of the Moon and figuratively figuratively quote appearance without substance pretense or fiction and the first time it was used to refer to liquor that didn't occur until the eighteenth century England and it's specifically referred to illegal or smuggled alcohol. That's why the name because smugglers use the cover of night to smuggle their goods which didn't necessarily have to be moonshine yes but but <hes> smuggling alcohol was common in Europe at the time and smugglers had only the shine of the moon to guide their pass moonlight was sometimes used in the same sense <hes> as moonshine was until the nineteenth century a yeah and for a while there any job or activity that was done late at night might be called moon shining or moonlighting but eventually moonshine nine came to really basically mean booze and booze related activities and moonlighting came to mean that other thing that moonlighting means. I totally forgot about moonlighting yeah. That's true I I remember because it was a company any stipulation that you couldn't moonlight and I had to get a thing that I could that movie anyway. There's actually a folk tale from the time about a group of smugglers caught in the act of raking the pond pond Abe bond aunt for barrels of smuggled French Brandy <hes> than they were caught by some tax collectors in the middle of the Act yes and thinking on their feet. The smugglers pretended to be a group of confused drunk people trying trying to rake in the moon's reflection or in their drunken parlance cheese yeah yeah there were like nod dude. We're not there's no certainly barrels of brandy in there.

"But when the Bush series came along that took us to Charlotte and Daytona and a lot of other racetracks. And Sam showed his skills were good enough to be. That too in winning championships. And you knew every time that he was going to be there that that he was going to be a factor in the race. And again, you talk about all the things that he did. I mean, he literally built the jesse's I bought a couple of chess and just trying to keep up with him. But but he's exactly what the hall of fame is about people that went in gave everything that they had and were successful at it. In those two championships. He literally along with few others carried the Bush series onto what it is today the extremity series and real quick on red vote. Do you think the mechanics of his day get enough credit for what they did? And in really building the sport. I don't think that all of them do, but I think it with red vote goes in or when he goes in that will help those guys along you look at him and say, there's a guy in Atlanta, Raymond parks who went in one of the most famous car stop start NASCAR a guy like red vote had a garage that he could make those flat head Ford's run, and they were running some braces other than maybe stuff with. The guy to see and everybody went to him and he built fast race cars. And I think you gotta look at him and say he may have been the first if framed park was the first real NASCAR owner he may have been the first real NASCAR crew chief interesting. Well, of course are twenty nominees that means are fourteen carryovers from valid hear those names. And certainly all these jump out Joe Gibbs here again. A great point a moment ago. We'll probably see all these guys in the hall of fame at some point a visually is going to happen with that. But the name that just stands out there as a driver buddy Baker. You talk about going fast. That's what the sports about going as fast as you possibly can. But Baker set records, and everything you need it anywhere that the cars were gonna go extremely fast on the edge. But he was a man to be. Here's Harry Hyde and other great crew chief, Bobby the body to me jumps out. And he made forget obviously won the Cup championship brave, but then won the expenditure championship as well. Yeah. Against Bobby basically, my whole career came up the same time, true gentlemen, but again champion bowl series. He jumps out at me to wonder if Ralph moody and home in the moody should go into get -solutely. Sure, I think Ralph moody certainly deserves to be Larry Phillips. I know rains guys trying to be back in the day without a doubt five-time weekly national series jets. But I want to tell you the guy that jumps out at me and the bottom of that list is what L Wilson because of the history heat has building his first ancient was nineteen sixty three with fireball Roberts and went on for Pearson and Carson in Lorenzo and aid. These guys. Yeah. Absolutely. And crew chief as well. So then to build a landmark nominees also out at toll Ford Allan Hawkins desk. First flies racetrack Ray wasn't wall stadium. All right, Mike Kelvin obviously NASCAR president and Dr Joseph Mattioli, founder Pocono raceway route Seagraves the man who really kinda pioneered the relationship between RJ Reynolds and NASCAR. But my health certain tilts out on that list is a guy who could not only win the landmark award. But maybe someday be the first ever to win the landmark and be in the hall of fame DJ. Yeah. There's no doubt that he's deserving of this at whatever time now, you know, the die think about Rousey graze in what may have happened to the sport if he wouldn't have intervened there and made this come together with RJ Reynolds at that time and everything that happened from that point forward. It was kind of the best of times if you will to make the sport really growth by leaps and bounds at that time, but Mike Helton is certainly deserving..

"And we had opportunities to take the puck wide or chip it to an area where we could track it down. But we chose the stick handle through it. And that's a recipe for disaster because they're just gonna poke check the puck off you. Guys. Well, obviously the only have three shots on goal in the third until the last minute. It was kind of classic predator defense. They know how to lock it down. And they're very good checking team. And when you're in that position, you just have to start, Raymond parks. You have to try to loosen it up. I thought the honor set breakout. I thought we had opportunities just to. Use the outside lanes, and we kept carrying the puck in the middle. And at that point. You're just gonna have to try to keep your speed and get it in and put an area keep it away from Rennie. So you can get unfortunate through it. All you had to really good looks at the end. There you missed an open net. And I think Sam I'd had a real good look at what the goaltender Paul too. Didn't. He. It was you know, Burgi wins three draws in a row there. We had some opportunities we just in cash in. I just thought overall I think we're going to need more help from our other lines to create some more office generate some more offense to take some heat off Jackson seems like five hundred five year, overcoming some of the injuries. You got. But maybe special teams not out of missing Marco on the penalty killing Connor on the power play. Well, I think you know, you missed those players they're invaluable to our team, especially the depth that with Drake and An Marchal Connor speed is, you know, he get onto four check. You know, I thought it was a good opportunity because there are banged up. I think we could have taken advantage of it. But you know, our powerplays gotta come through for us at that point. You know, we had some good movement. But I just think we didn't generate enough shots or had a shot mentality and our entries weren't very good. So we'll take a look at it pilot, the Hristo and I thought he played a solid game. It gets a good hockey team. So, you know, you know, the third period there he made some really nice little pocket place to relieve the pressure. So we could get out of his own but overall like game.

Time of year with those overnight lows but things are going to kind of change we. Head into the afternoon in. Terms of, average We're going to see temperatures only in the mid seventies, which usually we're still hitting the mid eighties right now, so we. Have that cold front that pushed through that's pushing out of the region as that moves out we're going to be left with just a few clouds this morning. And then we'll, see a little bit more clearing as we head into the afternoon and. That's because we have this ridge, of high pressure. That's sliding, into place next so that's what's bringing us. That cooler drier air. As that moves. In that's going to clear us with sunshine and it's also going to take those temperatures.

Clear on your way just days ago legendary broadcaster Sudden retirement brought praise from the, Indianapolis Colts in from other broadcasters around the country but breaking overnight there appears to. Have been another reason for Bob Leany sudden retirement it came just days after he. Was accused of using a racial swore in the course of a radio. Appearance while at colts camp last week. Nouveau newsweekly was first to report the allegation from an employee of MS communications Lamey was appearing on his show on sports, station ten seventy the, fan when the employee says he told a story off. The air about someone who news the n. word on air the employee is. Black and new goes report says Lamey use the n. word apologized, for it but then defended himself by saying that African. Americans use. The word all the time employee filed a complaint with human resources at MSN new Voces MS informed the colts of the story. Late last night Lee music Torney James Wales issued a statement, saying Lamey was not fired by the colts as some, have speculated He says Lamey admits that he used an inappropriate word as he was repeating, a story he had heard Boyle says Lamey immediately apologize to the people involved for. The comment and would hope that his error in judgment would not tarnish his long-held reputation in the sports community where he's been known. As an, accurate and passionate reporter James Voyles was also the attorney for colts owner Jim Irsay in two thousand fourteen when I say was, arrested in Carmel for. Operating a vehicle while intoxicated the colts have not responded to our TV sixes request for comment so far but. A colts Representative told nouveau that the team does, not comment on personnel matters we're hearing from, the leader of the Catholic church in central and southern Indiana about the controversy surrounding. A guidance counselor at Ron collie high school the counselor could lose her job because the school learned about her same, sex marriage archbishop. Charles Thompson finally addressed the matter in an open letter in the weekly Catholic newspaper the criterion Thompson says the issue involving Shelly FitzGerald is not about sexual orientation but the church's teaching that marriage is a covenant between a woman and a. Man and established and Rubio by God he also says there is nothing in, church, teaching, that says, being gay or lesbian is a sin God created each of us with. Equal dignity That's Gerald remains on paid administrative leave her. Lawyer is in talks with the Catholic archdiocese and hopes that she can keep her job. But the archbishop says no one has a right to ministerial, position and those who hold them. Must lead by word and example the duck vote disaster that killed nine members of an Indianapolis family is being reviewed by. Federal prosecutors in Missouri.
