I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the recent newspaper document called Civil Rights – Why We March.

I learned so much about the who, what and why of my history. There was so much that I had forgotten, or indeed, never heard before. The documentation of the first period, 1901-1919, stirred me so that I have much research to do on my own as part of my “re-education.”

Thank you again, for bringing our story to all who are interested in the truth of why marches were/are needed.
