    50 Years After Selma

    in Radio

    This show is all about where are we today, 50 years after Selma. Has the movement lost all the key elements needed to move forward. As a race of people have Blacks lost focus, unity, key leadership and the drive to take the movement to the next level. Fifty years later Blacks are still facing racism, excessive force by police and a voter rights act that does not give Blacks the full voting privileges that all other groups are afforded. Ferguson is a clear example of how excessive force by police is still being used on peaceful protesters just as it was on Bloody Sunday 50 years ago.

    Selma was Not just a Movie

    in Politics

    Selma was not a movie,it was the struggle for the liberation of African people in America.
    Anonymous
    On June 25 of last year, the Court effectively struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act by freeing nine states, mostly in the South, to change their election laws without advance federal approval.Since then, at least nine states have moved to restrict voting rights. Is there anything more disgraceful in a democracy? Will the Supreme Court come to understand we’re not a Third World country?Richard Valeriani
