King Seale Newton X Day (January 16, 2017)

. . .

K          “Changes in civil and voting rights laws emerged from an unwitting and uncoordinated two-prong strategy.  Some Blacks and a very few Whites presented a militant option and opportunity.  Most Blacks and almost all Whites pursued a non-violent option and opportunity.  Those in power preferred the non-violent option, yet the threat of force was a compelling undercurrent.”

. . .

J          “Celebrating a day around King’s birthday should be expanded to celebrate all of those who campaigned for civil and voting rights.”

. . .

K          “King Seale Newton X Day.”

J          “All day.  As they say in the Midwest.”

. . .

K          “In the next few weeks, we can add the names of women.”

. . .
