...I have (personally) seen "colored" water fountains, blacks not being allowed in the front door of hotels and only allowed in at all to clean them and whole schools that didn't even have a black person in until I was in 6th grade (1972). I remember Martin Luther King being killed 40 years ago.
Forty years ago.
The Civil Rights Movement was only 30-50 years ago.
No words can describe how proud I am of our country's growth through so much pain and evil.
There are no words to describe how full my heart is this evening.
You'll just have to trust me on this one.
