in Self Help
The march on Selma was celebrated yesterday. I viewed the march as a courageous act by Black people. But, at what cost? 50 years later and we are still not where we need to be economically. My mother in-law asked me was I watching it. This is what you read about, she stated. I told her no. I think it is commendable that they would put their lives on the line. But, while we were getting our heads bashed in to sit at a white man's lunch counter. We were signing our own death certificate economically.
50 YEARS LATER WHERE ARE THEY NOW? From Watts to What? Members of SCFIW – Student Committee For Improvement In Watts circa 1962-1966, reflect on their memories of Watts, the riots and what it meant to their lives and the world.
Supported by a fierce Irish woman, Ms. Sue Welsh, this team of young people demonstrated courage beyond the limits of what living in a ghetto meant coming of age in the early 60’s. They realized the Power of Manifesting your vision, a term not coined back in the 1960’s. They lived out their vision YOUNG PEOPLE CAN AND DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Many continued their educational pursuits by attending and graduating from colleges and universities across the nation. They are Professionals of every caliber who were first incubated in the womb of SCFIW. They continued to expand their visions and contributions to the world.
The world has evolved from being a ghetto to truly being a global human village.
The march in Selma was a historic event for our community. Many brothers and sisters suffered at the hands of the police on bloody sunday. The recent movie Selma shared with us a piece of history that isn't taught in American schools. A few things have changed for our community since that great march. We have the first African American president and have made great advances in our community. Sadly some of the same issues from 50 years ago we still deal with today. How can we improve and make progress? Why are racist still and forever obsessed with us as black people?
On August 28, 1963, hundreds of thousands descended upon our nation’s capital to make a stand against poverty and racial discrimination. The “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom” went down in history as one of the most pivotal points of change in our country’s history. One of the most notable highlights of the march was a speech delivered by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which later became known as the “I Have a Dream” speech. In it, Dr. King cast a spot light on the social, racial and financial injustices that had plagued “the negro” since they had been “made free” exactly 100 years ago, to the day, by the Emancipation Proclamation. This past August 28 marked the 50 anniversary of that historic day and King’s historic speech. A day that is credited with being one of the most significant events that brought about The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But today, 50+ years later, has the dream that so many marched, bled and died for come to fruition? Is the so-called “negro” really free? Have things changed for the better or have we squandered the inheritance of our elders and given ourselves over to a new slave master, sin? Join us, as we search the Holy Bible to interpret Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream

SATURDAY MORNING WAKE UP CALL
Topic for the Day: Civil Rights 50 Years Later
Today, in Washington DC, a nationwide coalition of civil rights groups is marching on the United States Capitol to call for legislation against discrimination by police and torture in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s post-9/11 torture program.
Fifty years ago -- in 1964 -- Dr. Martin Luther King was in n Oslo on December 10 for presentation of the Nobel Peace Award by Norway's King Olav. Dr. King accepted the Award not for himself, but as the representative of the Freedom Movement as a whole, saying in his Acceptance Speech: "I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally... [It is]...not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize."
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others."
~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
HAPPY MLK DAY!
So much has been spoken, written, and even sung about this great, historic American icon. Most would agree that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was THE definitive voice of change during one of the most tumultuous seasons in American history. Because of the collaborative efforts of Dr. King and many of his contemporaries at the time, The Civil Rights Act of 1964 became a reality. But that was 50 years ago. What's left of Dr. King's legacy for us to take and use to impact this current generation? Why are we still battling with racism, classism, and sexism? Are there lessons that we failed to learn in the past 50 years?
Tune in today as we chat with Edward Perry, Psalmist, U. S. Army Veteran and Senior Pastor of Bethsalem Baptist Church in Springfield, NY. We're discussing the legacy of Dr. King and how it translates into our current social issues.
