Judy Robinson’s story is a reminder of the racism that was deeply entrenched in America. She grew up in Alabama at a time when lynchings were not uncommon, and she never forgot how her father would tell her to “hurry home” because it was dangerous for black people to be out on the streets after dark. When she moved to Chicago, Judy lived with her aunt who had experienced firsthand what it meant to live as an African-American woman in the South. Judy told me about one incident where a white woman spit on them as they walked by because they were walking arm-in-arm down the street. It wasn’t until later that Judy realized this same act could have led to their death if done publicly in the South.
Judy Robinson was born in Montgomery, Alabama on April 14th, 1936 to a father who had graduated from Tuskegee Institute and a mother with college education but no degree because she could not afford the tuition. [..] Judy’s memories of her childhood were filled with stories of people being lynched or shot for simply trying to register to vote, often times right outside their house. She remembers one story told by her aunt about four black men walking down the street when they passed an angry white woman; this woman spit on them as they walked past even though it was daytime and all four men turned around and started running away – that small act led to two dying while the other two got locked up just for standing there! The racism in this town was so bad that even the water fountains were segregated!
Judy Robinson originally had an interest in being a doctor, but her family could not afford to send Judy and her brother to college. So she instead graduated from Tuskegee University with a biology major. With no other opportunities for work as a biologist or chemist at the time because of segregation laws, Judy took up teaching – which turned into politics as it became more difficult to teach black people without any resources on their own campuses while white schools got all the funding they needed (even though three-fourths of Alabama’s population was Black). She served five terms as chairperson of the state legislature and also helped register over 100,00 new voters during those years.
Judy Robinson was the first black woman to serve as secretary of state in Alabama, and she garnered national attention for her work on voter registration and civil rights. It is said that when she came back from a trip to Africa with Dr. King, they found out about Selma’s march happening on March 21st before making it home! And so the idea for marching across the Edmund Pettus Bridge alongside Martin Luther Kind Jr., John Lewis, Jesse Jackson Sr., Ralph Abernathy Jr., James Bevels, Bernard Lafayette and more came into play..
“We were not going to let Bull Connor beat us,” Judy recalled thinking at that time after seeing all those men lined up along an overpass waiting for them.
Judy Robinson’s story is one that has been told many times in the past, but it would not be as complete without this blog post. In these stories from her life she was able to show how people of color and women were treated unfairly then and still are today if they don’t have a voice.
She fought for justice by being an activist, civil rights leader, politician and more! Her legacy lives on through others so that history does not repeat itself. Judy Robinson will always be remembered as someone who spoke up when no one else did or wanted to hear what she had to say about discrimination.”

A task is typically a set of instructions that can be given to someone else for completion or as an assignment in school, such as tasks assigned for homework, work projects, and so on. Tasks are also used when tracking progress on a larger project by breaking it down into smaller parts. For example, if you have 20 chapters in your book or business plan but don’t want to write them all at once because they’re overwhelming (as both writing and managing multiple deadlines), then you could break up those chapters into five different “tasks” with three chapter assignments each.
The title of a task is usually the goal for it, so “researching for chapter two” would be an appropriate title. The description should include what materials are required and any deadlines associated with that particular task, including due dates or time frames when you plan to complete said tasks. If there’s no deadline set or if the deadline will be constantly changing because it depends on other factors outside your control (such as research), then don’t put in either of those pieces of information.
Finally, long-form content can take many shapes: blog posts, proposals, articles—even books! But all these forms have one thing in common—they’re written at length rather than condensed into bullet points or numbers list form like most short-form content.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: The first sentence should be a complete statement that introduces the piece of long-form content and tells readers what to expect from it. It’s also customary to tell your audience which material you’re going to cover with this blog post, but if there isn’t much variety or structure in terms of topic matter then you shouldn’t feel obligated to do so. For example, some blogs on Tumblr are made up entirely of memes—all they talk about is different occurrences where someone cried after watching “This Is Us.” That type of meme-only blog doesn’t need an introduction because it only has one point: who gets emotional when they watch TV? A more traditional/struct and why. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green tells the story of Hazel and Augustus, two teenagers who meet at a cancer patient support group. The book is written from their perspective (though it’s not always clear which one). They’re both charming kids—Hazel loves to read about old philosophers like Plato and Rousseau; Augustus wants to escape his life as much as possible because he knows that soon there will be nothing left for him but death.. Spoiler alert: At some point they fall in love with each other. John Green shares characters’ thoughts with readers through dialogue or internal monologues (‘thought bubbles’), so you can really get inside the heads of these teens dealing with this terrible disease called terminal cancer.”
