Last night I was watching Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr. The episode was following the family history of John Lewis, the last surviving member of The Big Six. It struck me how impressive he was as a young man standing next to Martin Luther King Jr. I cannot imagine his life experiences. I feel like people do talk about the realities of slavery and activies in the Civil Rights Movement but do not talk much about the ongoing injustices. We are currently on a female equality kick, which is wonderful, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. I cannot understand how people are still so fearful of different skin. When will it change? #martinlutherkingjrday
