Civil Rights Pioneer Soror Thelma McWilliams Glass Dies at Age 96

Soror Thelma McWilliams Glass, a longtime professor and civil rights pioneer who helped organize the Montgomery bus boycott, died on Wednesday. She was 96.

A statement from Alabama State University, where Soror Glass was a professor of geography, said she died but did not give a cause.

“The ASU family lost one of its crown jewels today,” said President William H. Harris. “Mrs. Glass was the consummate educator, whose life was a shining example of service, courage and commitment. She will be truly missed.”

Rest in peace our dear IBTW, thank you for your supreme service to all mankind.
