Keshia Thomas protected a a white man wearing a confederate flag tee shirt and an SS tattoo during a protest of a Klu Klux Klan Rally in Ann Arbor, Michigan in June 1996. Despite the fact that their beliefs were in direct opposition to each other, Keshia shielded this man from the blows of protesters angry that he was in their midst. She did not see their violence as justified for his (misguided) opinions. "I knew what it was like to be hurt," she says. "The many times that that happened, I wish someone would have stood up for me."
The man's son thanked Keshia some years later.
