Wow, what an honor. I never really understood the magnitude of his life and contributions until I became an adult. He’s one of the civil rights martyrs that history kind of glosses over. These men sacrificed so much and we never really got good lessons in school or at home. I spend a lot of time studying these movements — the way the movements started and how most of the activists came to the same conclusion we all come to…White Supremacy is a hard mother to fight without White people supporting us. Equality is something we all have to fight for. I hate I waited so late to become active the fight for equality.
