WE REMEMBER SELMA FIFTY YEARS LATER. 'OH THE MEMORIES...HOW THEY LINGER'

How poignant and telling these images of yesteryear are as we've witnessed SCOTUS eviscerating  the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Many states have already started employing barriers with  voting policies that are reminiscent of the era when many marched, suffered and lost their lives to claim their inalienable rights as United States citizens. As I've stated before in previous posts, our history in this country tends to be cyclic and as we remember the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we find ourselves again trying to regain protection under the law that will not only ensure equal access to ballot box, but resolve the many injustices in this society.  Current responses to these inequities are mirrored by the rally cry that "Black Lives Matter" as we address police brutality and discriminatory acts by the Criminal Justice System that stubbornly remain the headliners of our lives.  The struggle continues in other areas as well and the question becomes....is there ever any rest for the weary?
