THE EXPERIENCES, THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, ATMOSPHERE, AND CHANGES THAT TOOK PLACE IN ONE OF THE MOST GROUNDBREAKING AND PIVOTAL TIMES IN THE HISTORY OF OUR PEOPLE. STRONG, BLACK AND PROUD, OUR PEOPLE NOT ONLY CHANGED THE WAY OTHERS LOOKED AT US, BUT HOW WE LOOKED AT OURSELVES!  IT WAS A TIME OF STANDING UP AND SPEAKING OUR OWN TRUTH TO POWER. WE TOOK TO THE STREETS, MARCHING NON-VIOLENTLY, PROTESTING LOUDLY AND HEATED UP IN REVOLT. WE WENT FROM "WE SHALL OVERCOME" TO "BURN, BABY, BURN" AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. COME JOIN US AS WE SIT WITH SOME WHO LIVED IT AND SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS ON THIS PERIOD IN OUR HISTORY. AND LOOK TO SEE IF WE LEARNED ANYTHING FROM IT!!
