Black History Month for me. Reflecting.

by JAD on February 21, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

For me personally I don't have any bad times or even moments I can remember pertaining to the civil rights movement during the sixties. Sure there was prejudice everywhere in the South and other places; all the killing and riots which we've all seen time and time again, thank God our city didn't have. I was a teen during that time but old enough to remember if any had occurred. What I do remember were the black and white fountains and separate bathrooms, balcony seats at the movies; all of this at a much younger age. I thank God for a world that's changed, and still changing. And it's not all about the bad there's good history too. Reflecting on both.
