Memories of the 60’s

My friend Kathie from chosenperspectives published a YouTube video today that really moved me.  I thought I would share it with you.

(If the video doesn’t come up you can find it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-0NvkuPHZI)

I felt some sadness as I listened to the song, because these last eight years have shown how much work we still have to do in regards to racial relations.  At the same time, I know the words are as true now as they were when it was recorded.

In another post published today, Kathie also shared personal memories of what she was doing during the Civil Rights period and on the day that Martin Luther King was assassinated.  Check out her post at In Honor of Dr. King.  I think you will be glad you did.

  1. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by the separation and pain that exists around racial relations. I feel very moved by this song and I love the depth enclosed in the lyrics. Rosa sat, so Martin could walk and Obama could run… so I can find courage to look at my own blindness and ignorance around racism, to speak up and keep walking towards Martin’s dream.
