We have witnessed injustice being dished out to our Black men for years ... long before Emmett Till's lynching in 1955 in Money, Mississippi. We have marched with Rev. Martin Luther King, Fannie Lou Hamer, Glen Allan's own Jake Ayers, and other civil rights activists who have fought for our rights in every category as "minute" as being able to drink from the same water fountain as Whites.
