    Anne McCarty Braden (July 28, 1924 – March 6, 2006) was an American advocate of racial equality. Born in Louisville, Kentucky, and raised in rigidly segregated Anniston, Alabama, Braden grew up in a white middle-class family that accepted southern racial mores wholeheartedly. A devout Episcopalian, Braden was bothered by racial segregation, but never questioned it until her college years at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Virginia. After working on newspapers in Anniston and Birmingham, Alabama, she returned to Kentucky as a young adult to write for the Louisville Times. There, in 1948, she met and married fellow newspaperman Carl Braden, a left-wing trade unionist. She became a supporter of the civil rights movement at a time when it was unpopular among southern whites.

    Annie Lee Cooper (1910-2010) was an African-American civil rights activist in the 1965 Selma Voting Rights Movement who is best known for throwing a punch to the jaw of Selma Sheriff Jim Clark and knocking him off his feet. This occurred when he had hit her in the back of the neck with either a billy club or a cattle prod after she had been standing in line for hours at the Dallas County Courthouse in an attempt to register to vote. She was arrested and beaten, then held for 11 hours before being allowed to leave. Some in the sheriff's office wanted to charge her with attempted murder.
