Montgomery: lemony sweet viburnum blooms, plush Peru Balsam, delicate neroli, a hint of green foliage

from 6.50

“I think you just brought the revolution to Montgomery” - pastor Reverend Johnson to Claudette Colvin as he drove her home from jail

Months before Rosa Parks’ famous act of civil disobedience, fifteen year old Claudette Colvin stood up for her rights by sitting down. Putting into practice the  black history and civil rights she had recently studied in school, Claudette refused to move as she knew it was her constitutional right to stay -- despite being ordered to the back of the bus. She remained seated until forcibly arrested by two police officers, later saying, “It felt like Sojourner Truth was on one side pushing me down, and Harriet Tubman was on the other side of me pushing me down. I couldn’t get up.” Although she was the first to really challenge the bus segregation law, she didn’t fit the profile civil rights leaders had in mind; however, it was her court case and that of three other women plaintiffs that overturned the Alabama bus segregation laws with Browder v. Gayle. It may have takens years for her story to be remembered and celebrated, but for decades, the bravery of one teenage girl has made the world a better place for us all.

Notes: lemony sweet viburnum blooms, plush Peru Balsam, delicate neroli, a hint of green foliage

Available in our travel-friendly 5 ml bottle with stainless steel rollerball or our 2 ml mini apothecary bottle.
