She didn't take it for granted. Later she discovered that her mother was killed by white rapists who were not judged for their crime. In 1940's Bates and her husband began to publish Arkansas State Press, the paper that advocated rights of black people. In 1952 Bates became the President of The NAACP in Arkansas.
