DC’s Light Shines Bright for Those That Live and Work Here

As I sat on the city bus headed to school, I knew I was in the “wrong” seat. There was no way a little black girl should be taking up space in the front of one of Jacksonville, Fla.’s, most popular modes of transportation. But I didn’t care. I had as much right to that seat as anyone. Unfortunately, not everyone saw it that way. As we made our way past city blocks, we stopped, and a larger man boarded the bus and curtly told me to move. I didn’t acknowledge the order, then he demanded again that I move. []
