Refusal to submit

"Time and time again, she sought to show the roots—the legitimacy—of black rebellion. It galled her that black people were often told to wait, to be patient and not angry. She had long hated the ways black rebels were seen as freaks or demonized for their refusal to submit." ~Jeanne Theoharis, The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks
