It's been nearly 70 years since Recy Taylor, now 91, was gang-raped by a group of white men. Her case was eventually taken up by Rosa Parks, but the confessed perpetrators were never punished. Taylor recently told the Root, "I should have talked more about it too myself. At the time, I didn't want nobody to think something like that happened to me. I thought folks were going to talk about me and say, 'You was raped.' I was ashamed of it, and I didn't know how to go about talking about it."
