    The Sixties Civil Rights Movement

     

    I've arranged this project for educational purpose and being processed for legal protection.

    It would be great if CNN Reporter Danna Brazile, or another interesting news correspondent could be the main point of contact for this project for media coverage? If interested, I could furnish you a copy of my work.

     

    Years ago, I pondered the same question due to degrading education in many cities. And, the lack of awareness still by many young Americans, let alone foreigners.

     

    As a result, I felt many used the word freedom excessively exclusively of liberty.

     

    When I see the Statue of Liberty, I asked myself, to whom did it apply actually, after Emancipation. It applied to ALL American Citizens, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or color.

     

    Somehow then, and now it seems to a lesser extent a political tradition only for some.

     

    So, as citizens we must recognize this important factor, and insure our elected officials insure domestic policies are all inclusive, not exclusive of so many citizens (all ethnicities, especially minorities) of the United States.

     

    This was/is depicted in my vision and literary project for educational and debatable purposes.
