She Spoke up: The Rape of Racy Taylor

Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old Black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white men in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.
