Apologies to Mrs. Recy Taylor

It's been a long time coming but, finally Alabama native Recy Taylor is receiving apologies from her home state for the mishandling of her 1944 rape case.

Earlier this week the house came to a unanimous voice vote while issuing "deepest sympathies and solemn regrets' to Recy Taylor.

According to theroot.com, ninety-one-year-old Recy Taylor, who now resides in Florida, was raped by six white men while walking home from church in Abbeville, Alabama. This case landed in the hands of the NAACP activist and anti-rape crusader Rosa Parks, whose main focus at that time was sexual assaults again Black women in the Jim Crow south. Although, the case made international headlines the assailants were never punished. Now, sixty seven years later, Recy Taylor is now getting her fair apologies. Although, it will never take away from the pain and memory of that day it can be looked at as a step forward and a needed reminder of our history.

Spread Love. Live life. Be Inspired.

Stay True,
