There were rules for wet-nursing a child that an African American woman cared for during the days of slavery; even before the Jim Crow era the “Whites Only” sign applied even to the slave woman’s breast. One breast could be used to feed the white child the other for nursing her own. Punishment could be swift and severe if a wet nurse ever allowed a black child, and a white child, to suckle from the same breast.

On November 30, 1954, the Sylacauga meteorite became the first extraterrestrial object on record to strike a human being. The grapefruit-sized fragment crashed through the roof of Oak Hill, Alabama resident Ann Elizabeth Hodges house, bounced off a large wooden console radio, then deflected onto her while she napped on a couch. The 31-year-old woman was badly bruised on one side of her body, but able to walk. The event received worldwide publicity.
