Description

Speaker and writer Robert Weir will share a powerful experience at the June Citizens for Peace meeting! The issues of the Civil Rights Movement have not gone away but have manifested as Human Rights issues that affect all Americans today. Thus, The March Continues! The parallels between then and now include: • Segregation then, Marginalization and Deportation now • Poll Taxes then, Legislative Disenfranchisement now • Lynchings/Beatings then, Hate Crimes now Robert’s extremely emotional presentation, which is based on his Living Legacy Pilgrimage into the Land of Slavery, will reveal how and why resilience and inspiration prevails in spite of colorism, racism, and systemic white supremacy.
