Alberta Jones, Louisville’s first female black prosecutor, was killed in 1965. The 34- year-old civil rights pioneer was beaten and thrown in the Ohio River. The prosecutor was pulled out of her rental car, beaten in the head with a brick until she lost consciousness and thrown into the Ohio River, where she drowned. The brutal Aug. 5, 1965, murder of Alberta O. Jones, a civil rights activist and the first woman to become a prosecutor in Louisville, was never solved, despite fingerprints obtained from her car and witnesses who saw men tossing a body from a bridge. Never forget about Jones, a trailblazer who integrated the University of Louisville and worked as the first attorney for Muhammad Ali, who was then Cassius Clay, negotiating the contract for his first fight. #blackhistory
