Summary

Mary Hamilton grew up knowing right from wrong. She was proud to be Black, and when the chance came along to join the civil rights movement and become a Freedom Rider, she was eager to fight for what she believed in. She was arrested again and again—and she did not back down when faced with insults or disrespect. 

In an Alabama court, a white prosecutor called her by her first name, but she refused to answer unless he called her “Miss Hamilton.” The judge charged her with contempt of court, but that wasn’t the end of it. Miss Mary Hamilton fought the contempt charge all the way to the Supreme Court. This powerful story honors an unsung heroine who took a stand for respect—and won.
