NORWALK — When Jacqueline Steiner died at age 94 in late January, she was eulogized by many as the brains behind the classic folk tune, “Charlie on the MTA.” But in Norwalk, the city she spent the second half of her life, it is her dedication to fighting for equality for which she will be most remembered.
“She was an ardent fighter for justice. She was never intimidated by any political influence or any individuals. She was just a good woman — a woman fighting for not only justice but for fairness,” said the Rev. Lindsay Curtis, a former president of the Norwalk branch of the NAACP.
