An update and a correction

This from Tayari Jones on today's anniversary, and what came before.

The novelist's point:
Resistance is always happening. It's just not always on the news.
Among other things that came before was a 1958 Oklahoma City lunch-counter sit-in. Tayari's mother, Barbara Ann Posey Jones, "was among these brave young people."

Also, I apologize for the typo in my earlier posting that for a while there had the Woolworth sit-in happening in 1950.
