AIN'T GONNA LET NOBODY TURN ME AROUND


By Vernalee

Since February is Black History Month, let's look back over our civil rights history; shall we?

Called the Conscience of Congress, a voice for equality, a voice for civil rights, John Lewis left his earthly walk on July 17, 2020. "As the only original speaker in the March on Washington who would live to see the historical moment of Barack Obama becoming the first Black President, Lewis was on stage during Obama’s inauguration on January 20, 2009 – five days after what would have been Martin Luther King’s eightieth birthday."

We lost two civil rights icons a couple of years ago - Congressman John Lewis and Rev. C. T. Nance, a close adviser to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. These leaders as did Dr. King …didn't let nobody turn them around from their fight for equality!

Their marks in history left an indelible impression that can't ever be erased. Keeping the dream alive should be a part of our daily walk! Our equality steps are needed just as much now as they were 50 + years ago.
