I value history very much. We learn from it to become better people and a better nation. These are people and issues that you should learn about and spread to build pride, awareness & education in our community.

Glad to have worked with him with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference youth events for 2 years. I invited him to my college campus to speak about his experience in the Civil Rights Movement.. (He passed away & here’s the link to a video about him Courtesy Fox 6 )
Books that I suggest everybody read & have in your library for you and your children to pass down.
This is a story about the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham, Alabama and showed the capitalism, religion, real roots behind racism during the 1960s. It reads as a novel and not text book like. Click here BYE from Amazon.com
