It's more than just the well known civil rights leaders that we always talk about. This is for the unknown martyrs who gave their lives for our basic rights.
Great sound! Great narrative! I felt like I was steeped into the Southern culture of 1948 with just a few short sentences! Riviting, chilling and incredibly relevant today. This is a man who was willing to die for the right to vote. As we face mid-term elections, what would you do to exercise your right to vote?. Don't take it for granted because issues such as Voting Rights and add gerrymandering are very real today. I love this story because Georgia will have a gubenatorial election this year, and I plan on getting as many people out to vote as possible. I will now do in honor of Isaiah Nixon.
Thank you WABE! These stories are so important for the whole world to hear. This is how we heal the South.
