An Iconic Moment

 

Gloria Richardson  [not an immediate relative as far as I know] was a major activist in the Civil Rights movement, she led the early 1960s Cambridge Movement in her hometown of Cambridge, Maryland. She turns 92 today. (Photo: Gloria Richardson pushes away a National Guard bayonet, 1963.)

This is one of the bravest gestures in American history. Why is this not an iconic picture? Put this on a stamp. Put it in all the history books about that era.
