Day 4 | Georgia Gilmore

Show Notes

She was rowdy, fun, and made the best pork chops in town.  Oh – and she single-handedly funded the Montgomery Bus Boycotts!  Let's get into it.  Today's walk is dedicated to the great Georgia Gilmore, a midwife, and mother of six.  After hearing of Rosa Parks' arrest, she started cooking, feeding our people, and raising record amounts of money for the movement.  With her new business, she hired Black drivers to carpool people to work during historic boycotts of the racist bus system.  We can't WAIT to celebrate this giant in self-determination on today's walk.
