Summary
Civil rights leader Amelia Boynton Robinson was born on August 18, 1911 in Savannah, Georgia. In 1934, at the age of twenty-three, Robinson became one of the few registered black voters, and helped other blacks become registered. In 1936, Robinson wrote a play entitled Through the Years, to raise money for a community center that would be open to blacks in the then-racially segregated Selma, Alabama. On February 29, 1964, Robinson became the first black woman to seek a seat in Congress from Alabama. In 1965, Robinson was one of the civil rights leaders that led the famous first march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, known as Bloody Sunday. In 1984, Robinson became board member and then vice-chairperson of the Schiller Institute. In 1992, Robinson co-founded the International Civil Rights Solidarity Movement. She received worldwide recognition for her service to humanity. Robinson passed away on August 28, 2015, at the age of 104.
