Juanita Abernathy

https://www.npr.org/2019/09/13/76052710 ... dies-at-87
Juanita Abernathy, the widow of civil rights icon the Rev. Ralph Abernathy and one of the last surviving architects of the modern civil rights movement, died Thursday. She was 87.

She died at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta from complications related to a stroke, family spokesperson James Peterson tells NPR. Funeral arrangements are still being finalized.

"She was the last remaining major organizer" of the civil rights movement, according to a statement from Peterson.

Abernathy worked alongside her husband and Martin Luther King Jr. and many others in the 1950s and 1960s to push for equal rights for African Africans on a range of issues, from voting rights and school desegregation to housing protections.

She is credited with writing the business plan for the 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery, Ala., which protested the segregation of seating on public transportation in the city. The boycott — originally meant to last a day — went on for 381 days and eventually led to the courts declaring segregated seating unconstitutional.
