Georgia Gilmore, The Backbone Of The Montgomery Bus Boycott | Episode 49
Georgia Gilmore was a good witch with a bad bitch's heart. She was a badass cook who sued a bus driver who kicked her off the bus and, as a result, was fired from the white restaurant who employed her. At the urging of Dr. Martin Luther King, she opened a restaurant in her own home. Her restaurant became a meeting place for Dr. King and many other figures in the civil rights movement. She also was responsible for creating The Club from Nowhere, a network of women who sold meals they had cooked at local institutions, games and rallies, in order to raise money for the Montgomery Bus Boycott carpool. The Club From Nowhere raised a rough equivalent of 1200 bucks a week in today's currency, which helped keep the carpool alive for the 381 days the boycott was in effect. Warning! This episode WILL make you hungry.
