Autherine Lucy attempted to speak to an audience about liberty and tolerance of opposing viewpoints. She wasn't able to deliver her speech because her audience shouted her down. How dare she espouse freedom. They wanted her to demand enslavement of the producer and the imposition of socialism. When she rebuked them for such nonsense...she became a marked lady...whose statement would never reach the world. U.S. Senator DOUG JONES(D.Ala) laughed* at the "shout-down" pointing out that LUCY'S message of liberty didn't sell nowadays in Alabama noting his election proved Alabamians want to be slaves with him as their would-be master.
*Although scumbag-Jones did not know it...on the campus of the University of Alabama...a statue of LUCY was unveiled.
