Her daughter, Shelbe Patricia Bullock, confirmed her death to the St. Louis Dispatch, "She went peacefully with her family beside her". "We ask for privacy until Sunday so we can plan services".

"Sad to hear of Frankie Muse Freeman's passing".

Freeman became the first woman to join the U.S Civil Rights Commission in 1964, which investigates discrimination complaints, collects data on discrimination, and advises lawmakers and the president on equal protection and the issues of discrimination. "I really believe that all men, all women are created equally'".

National NCAAP board member John Gaskin, from St. Louis County, said Freeman has passed the torch, "She is looking down on us to lead and not be looking for a time that's convenient, but to lead now". A civil rights hero, she was the first woman Commissioner appointed to @USCCRgov, and served for 16 years.

A civil rights attorney, Freeman was born Marie Frankie Muse on November 24, 1916 in Danville, Virginia, where she attended Westmoreland School and learned to play the piano.

In 1954, Freeman successfully argued Davis et al. v. the St. Louis Housing Authority, a class-action lawsuit that challenged racial discrimination in public housing and successfully brought about the end of legal discrimination in the city.

Freeman left an indelible mark on the USA legal system by trying cases that curbed segregation. She also has a star on the Civil Rights Walk of Fame in Atlanta.

On her 100th birthday in October 2016, the St. Louis National Association for the Advancement of Colored People threw her a party to honor her exceptional life and work for advancing the rights of Black people and people of color in the United States.
