Everyone needs to go online (Amazon) and purchase Mr. Shelton's wife's book she wrote to help explain segregation to children, entitled, "Growing Up As A Child In the Civil Rights Movement."

I have a dream that one day, the people of this world will wake up to the lines that divide us, and wake up to those that play us against each other for political and monetary gains. King united people, and for that he paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Hope you will join us tomorrow; Mr. Hilary O. Shelton is surely to challenge us to raise the banner of awareness and advocacy; to assist in bridging communities and pushing back the darkness of hate. Hope to see you there. :)
