          She was elected well before some of the more famous 60' era civil rights leaders were elected. MLK Jr. looked older but he was only 39 when he was assassinated. I wonder if he would have gone on to serve in Congress like many of the key people around him? He had so many years left.

              King didn't live to see his middle ages, that is true. He lived a relative short life, but he accomplished so much in his 39 years, more than any other I can think of. I seriously doubt that he would have ever run for public office.

              I don't know what you mean by more famous. She was just as famous for her actions and accomplishment as were others of the movement era who ran for office. Do you mean lessor known than civil rights leaders who where dogged and spied on by Hoover?

                      She also had the audacity to object to the committee she was assigned to. Agriculture. What good would she do there for her constituents? She stuck to her guns and got moved. A great woman. A great American. A great Human.

                          Thanks for the additional information.

                          She really opened doors and paved the way for those who would follow in her footsteps.
