History’s bad-ass of the day: See that picture? It was taken in 1965 in Selma, Alabama.
That’s Annie Lee Cooper, a maid at the only hotel in town that allowed blacks.
When the county sheriff, Jim Clark, started roughing up the crowd of black Alabamians that were waiting to be registered to vote, Annie Lee Cooper said, “Ain’t nobody scared around here.”
Jim Clark shoved her.  
Annie Lee Cooper punched that guy right in his bastard head. This picture is the attempt by three officers to hold Annie Lee Cooper down so they could arrest her.
It took two pairs of handcuffs to hold her. Annie Lee Cooper.  Fearless bad-ass lady of History.

History&#8217;s bad-ass of the day: Fannie Lou Hamer, independent woman in white-man&#8217;s world. (Most definitely speaking some straight truth, above).
Daughter of southern share-croppers
When her family finally had enough money to buy some land, her white neighbors poisoned their cows
A white doctor made her infertile against her will
Worked with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) to bring voting rights to blacks in the South
Her testimony (along with other things) prompted the Voting Rights Act  

History’s bad-ass of the day: Fannie Lou Hamer, independent woman in white-man’s world. 
(Most definitely speaking some straight truth, above).
