civil rights pioneer  Irene Morgan Kirkalde   in July of 1944 she refused to surrender her seat on a Greyhound Bus to a white couple; the bus driver had her arrested — in addition to being charged with violating Virginia's segregation laws she was charged with resisting arrest (a kick to a cop's nads!); she plead guilty to the reisting charge & paid a $100 fine but plead innocent to the segregation charge and refused to pay the $10 fine when convicted; the case worked it's way up to the U.S. Supreme Court (Irene Morgan v. Commonwealth of Virginia 328 U.S. 373 (1946)) where Thurgood Marshall argued her case; the thrust of his argument was that the local segregation laws violated the interstate commerce clauses of the Constitution when applied to modes of transportation that cross state lines; by a 6-1 vote the justices agreed, voiding the application of the local laws (and starting the process of unraveling the precedent set in Plessy v. Ferguson); the first "Freedom Ride" was conducted in 1947 to test whether the ruling would be observed (numerous arrests later it was proven to be universally ignored in the South); it took another 16 years for the Feds to get serious about enforcing the ruling
