Robert E. Lee's Daughter Arrested for solidarity with African Americans. She sat in a train car reserved for Blacks and refused to move. From the Cleveland Gazette, June 21, 1902...
Points to remember:
- She was the daughter of Robert E. Lee
- This was consistent with the values of her father
- The quote "assinine prejudice of 'chivalrous Southerners'"; uhh... she was Southern and she did something pretty chivalrous, disproving the implied stereotype.
- Oh yeah... did I mention she was the daughter of Robert E. Lee?
