520    One hundred years before Rosa Parks took her stand, 
       Elizabeth "Lizzie" Jennings tried to board a streetcar in 
       New York City on her way to church. Though there were 
       plenty of empty seats, she was denied entry, assaulted, 
       and threatened all because of her race -- even though New 
       York was a free state at that time. Lizzie decided to 
       fight back. She told her story, took her case to court -- 
       where future president Chester Arthur represented her -- 
       and won! Her victory was the first recorded in the fight 
       for equal rights on public transportation, and Lizzie's 
       case set a precedent.
