I am speechless. I am crying. I never thought I would see it.
The names of ghosts are overwhelming me, people who did not live to see this day.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mose Wright, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, Robert Gorelick,, Robert Gilleece, Elizabeth Gorelick, Harold Gorelick, Abraham Minkus, Libby Minkus, Barbara Lombardo, Gregory Hines, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, John Duvanich, Eva Rubin, Paul Robeson, Tom Bradley, Burke Marshall, Malcolm, Abraham Joshua Heschel.
I can’t think of anything else: Those who aren’t here.
We are their witnesses.
I would like to also add
I think that people like Fred Shuttlesworth, Ella Baker, Jo Ann Robinson, Harry T Moore, A. Phillip Randolph, Septima Clark, J.A. Delaine,Charles Hamilton Houston and many more civil rights activists from CORE, SNCC and NAACP who are almost always forgotten by media and majority of the people of the United States.
What great choices….
