When Theresa Burroughs came of voting age, she was ready to cast her ballot—but she had a long fight ahead of her.

During the Jim Crow era, the board of registrars at Alabama’s Hale County Courthouse prevented African American people from registering to vote. Undeterred, Theresa remembers venturing to the courthouse on the first and third Monday of each month, in pursuit of her right to vote.

Theresa Burroughs died May 23, 2019
