As children are headed back to school, here is a little history lesson of what we experienced in the 1960s.

If we need a reminder about our values as a country or what our responsibilities are as to civil rights, President Kennedy’s 1963 speech is a good review:

And in San Francisco in the 1960s, Dick Gregory used humor when he came to the Hungry i nightclub to talk about race:

Dick Gregory lived his life as a comedian, an “agitator” (his personal description) and a civil rights activist. Gregory was still talking to people about his beliefs last week. He died Friday, August 19 at the age of 84.

Best wishes,
