Bloody Sunday

March 7, 2015

Yes, that bridge will be renamed.  The time has been written and approaches.

Be sure to scroll down that NYT page and see all of the photos.

And hey, I actually just now remembered that my postal address before i moved out here, nine years ago, was “Selma IN”.  Good lord.  Could that be true, or is my ancient memory collapsing my life?

Meanwhile, Michelle (as in, Obama) has sent me this page with video of The President of The United States of America in Selma AL  (I haven’t yet gotten it to play).  (Probably she sent it to you too.)  The Vice-President was also there, and of course Congressman Lewis.  And 40,000 or so other folks from the area and around the country.

Here are 3 major excerpts of the President’s speech.

Just think, we are struggling to end prejudice and discrimination, among our people, on the basis of color and ancestral origin.  That’s big.

From → democracy, racism
