    Hello Family,

    We had a great class today! Thanks everyone for being there and taking part in the discussion! I learned so much!

    I captured some of the text from class, for those who weren't present. I got kicked out of the room toward the end, so the closing of class isn't included. Keep in mind as you read, that Brother OldSoul was speaking / teaching on the mic while all of this text (class discussion) was taking place.

    I also recorded this class, and we can play it in voice chat at our leisure.

    Thank you Brother OldSoul! :teach:

    [Lazarus] 1:29 pm : the NAACP had planned it.
    [panafrica] 1:30 pm : Or did she consider herself an outlaw, breaking laws which were oppressive and immoral
    [Lazarus] 1:30 pm : she was a soldier.
    [Destee] 1:30 pm : i don't know how she considered herself
    [panafrica] 1:30 pm : The NAACP systematically challenged segregation laws
    [panafrica] 1:30 pm : They had been doing so since 1909
    [PurpleMoons] 1:31 pm : She consider herself neither. She considered herself and activist
    [Lazarus] 1:31 pm : right...

    [Lazarus] 1:32 pm : Ida B. Well refused to give up her seat on a segregated train car.
    [panafrica] 1:32 pm : There was an important detail which made sister Parks' case the perfect example to challenge Jim Crow
    [panafrica] 1:32 pm : The law was seperate but equal
    [panafrica] 1:33 pm : Blacks and Whites were suppose to have the same (although different)
    [Lazarus] 1:33 pm : I disagree with the "equal"....
    [panafrica] 1:33 pm : Rosa Parks was not in the white section of the bus....she was sitting in the black section
    [panafrica] 1:33 pm : Rosa was were she was supposed to be
    [panafrica] 1:34 pm : What was actually done was if the white section was full, then they sat in the black section, and blacks had to stand up
    [Destee] 1:34 pm : CLASS TOPIC: Outlaws, Thugs, and Kunte Kente!
    [panafrica] 1:34 pm : It was a violation of the laws which Plessy v Ferguson had established
    [panafrica] 1:35 pm : That is why Rosa Parks' situation was able to sucessfully challenge those laws
    [Destee] 1:35 pm : rite ... the consequence became HEAVIER !
    [Destee] 1:35 pm : misdemeanors were now felonies !
