Yesterday the world celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The courage and profound necessity of his existence will be felt for generations.
All day I was thinking about the black community and how many African American's were subjected to violence and inhumanity, just for equality. I shook my head so many times when I watched yesterday, for the third time, Four Little Girls. This is an HBO documentary that showed the lives and legacies of the four young girls, killed at the 16th Street Baptist Church on September 15, 1963.
Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley were all killed by a bomb that was placed in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama that Sunday morning.
Every single person needs to see this film. Every one you. This is the epitome of racism. This is the disgusting bigotry that the black community has endured for centuries. And it needs to stop.
