When the bus boycotts broke out in  Montgomery after Rosa Parks was arrested, Georgia knew just                                          what to do. She organized a group of women who cooked and                                baked to fund-raise for gas and cars to help sustain the boycott.                             Called the Club from Nowhere, Georgia was the only person who                                      knew who baked and bought the food, and she said the money                                        came from “nowhere” to anyone who asked. When Martin Luther                               King Jr. was arrested for his role in the boycott, Georgia testified  on his behalf, and her home became a meeting place for civil rights leaders.
