Civil Rights Newsletter Archive

Guest Author - Lorraine E. Chavis


Hi, thank you for considering the civil rights newsletter for your reading enjoyment. It's free, easy to sign-up for and comes out weekly.

Iím so excited about being the editor of this newsletter and the companion civil rights site. I plan on offering a strong civil rights foundation and then building on that foundation. I will give a new and refreshing voice to this longtime subject, a responsibility I donít take lightly.

For instance my Emmet Till article is very poignant to understanding the broader context of what was happening to blacks in the south before, during and to some extent after the Civil Rights Era. Commonly people felt like things werenít that bad or blacks should have fought back, but this story is a prime example of the terror that was instilled in blacks and the deep seeded lack of moral integrity on behalf of some people in the south. Grown men did this to a child, a child.

I also think civil rights are largely about the constitution and the Declaration of independence. I plan on writing about various issues facing Americans with diverse backgrounds. In addition to worldwide civil rights issues. Itís important that we not only understand our rights, but that we also understand that these are the rights that were denied many. I think the former is often easier to understand than the latter.

It's important that we understand the reasons that we as a country and we as a people have encountered the problems we face today. I hope the generations to come can surpass these issues, but as a historian I know failure to remember the past is a catalyst for repetition of the past.

If you decide to sign-up for my newsletter you will receive interesting and original content. I hope you will join the group of brave hearts that sign-up.

Donít forget to visit the companion site for the civil rights newsletter: http://www.bellaonline.com/site/civilrights or the forum.

Thanks
