It’s my birthday!

Today is my birthday!
Born: 12/26/1944.
In NOLA with family, remembering so many points of struggle in the ongoing fight for Black Freedom: Ruby Bridges; Canal Street Boycotts; grassroots organizing after Katrina; Homer Plessy and the community response to Plessy v. Ferguson: “…the obligation of the people is to resist oppression…”
In the words of the great NOLA native Fats Domino who passed on this year: It’s been a thrill!
