The fIfth episode of the Black Moon Podcast honors the life of Jo Ann Robinson. Without Jo Ann Robinson, we might have never known the names of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., and we, Black people that is, may still be sitting in the back of the bus. This episode is a little bit different in that I actually do not know how Jo Ann Robinson died. I know the magnificence of how she lived, and I know that she is often forgotten in the story of how we’ve always fought to get free.​ Jo Ann Robinson was a beacon to all freedom fighters who do their work in the background, join me in seeing her in her deserved place - in the light.
Topics touched on in include: Montgomery Bus Boycott, the south, the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. racism, racial abuse.
