Civil rights crusader passes

There are tributes and thoughts in the press about C. Dolores Tucker, whose activity in these parts precedes my time here, and who passed away on Wednesday. For those who knew her or are interested in knowing more, here's the Daily News piece from yesterday and a little follow-up note from today, and here's the Inquirer article and an editorial reflecting on her life. Lots of pioneers passing this fall; time for the new generation to take up where they left off.
