Nashville police officer wielding nightstick holds youth at bay during a civil rights march in Nashville, Tennessee.
Headcanon that Sam's great grandmother was a badass soldier and spy way back in the day, possibly mentoring Peggy and other women. She was certified, grade A+++ badass and is probably still alive at like 100+ years old. She knew everybody (Maya Angelou, Josephine Baker, James Baldwin, Friday Kahlo, etc) and had dozens of different jobs in her lifetime. She has killed men with her bare hands.
