She was a tough in your

face, tell it like it is presence,

who spoke truth to power.

Her big spirit was only matched

by her passion for civil

and humans rights.

 

On August 22, 1964 she sat

before the DNC and described

a vicious beating in a Mississippi

jail that left her with severe kidney

problems, a blood clot in one eye

and a permanent limp.

 

She declared in her own outspoken

way: “I am sick and tired of being sick

and tired!” It was a phrase heard

around the world and was a pivotal

moment in the Civil Rights Movement.
