Freedom Riders

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 5:36 pm

Back in the early 1960’s, a group of black and white individuals set out to change the status quo of how we treat one another in this country.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was called in on one dark night in Alabama, where a group, mob really, began setting cars on fire and burning crosses outside of a small black church.  As the church was literally surrounded, Dr. King called Bobby Kennedy in Washington D.C., the White House, where Mr. Kennedy ordered the town shut down and martial law was proclaimed.  A small victory for black America at the time.  Dr. King would go on to lead the march for equal rights, or “civil rights”, for all men or women regardless of race, creed, social status…”that all men are created equal”.  Perhaps one of the bravest men to ever walk the face of the planet and today, sir, I humbly honor your birthday.  God Speed!  Peace~ M
