I learned this while watching Drunk History! I was shocked I had never hear of her before.
Not even on tumblr!
I’ve seen this on Drunk History too!! Drunk History on comedy central: a better source for American history than the education system.
I wonder if it was out of concern for the teenager and her unborn child or because they didn’t want a pregnant teenager to represent them…
^^Good inferences! But who knows…the latter is definitely a possibility. There was a lot of bias in black representation back then.
