AIN'T GONNA LET NOBODY TURN ME ROUND

By Vernalee

As we commemorate the 57th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the day in 1965 when white state troopers attacked Black voting rights marchers attempting to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge, we reflect on the importance of music during the Civil Rights era. State troopers on March 7, 1965, beat and tear-gassed peaceful demonstrators, including young activist John Lewis, who later became a longtime Georgia congressman. The images of the violence shocked a nation and helped galvanize support for passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. No we ain't gonna let nobody turn us round as God brought us this far by faith. He will continue to guide us and order our steps. Happy Sunday! Blessings!
