Civil Rights Newsletter for 03-04-05
Thank you for subscribing to the Civil Rights Newsletter published by BellaOnline´s Civil Rights area (the well-known corner of the web where EVERYONE can discuss civil rights civilly, where EVERYONE can find resources and links to articles and sites that deal with cutting edge civil rights issues in many areas of daily living, and where EVERYONE is a member of a family where (wo)men can discuss hot topics of the day without having to worry that it is “off limits” in polite company)!
We are revisiting our series on “Civil Rights Heroes”. In Civil Rights Hero - Susan Brownell Anthony we come face to face with probably the most famous members of the women’s suffrage movement, Ms. Susan B. Anthony. Additionally, we also take a look at the inaugural article of our “Exercising your rights” series”. Wondering about your rights and obligations when pulled over in your vehicle, the article The Innocent Driver’s Guide To An Encounter With A Police Officer attempts to prove that every right has attached to it an obligation.
This Month In Civil Rights History
On March 13th, 2006, we will remember Susan B. Anthony at the 100th commemoration of the day of her death.
Civil Rights Trivia Game
Last time we asked the question: There was one member of congress who refused to sign the Declaration of Independence. What was his name? Why did he refuse to sign it?
The Answer: John Dickinson. He was unwilling to take this final step of separation from England.
Unfortunately, we do not have a winner. Don’t despair, there is always this time!
If you know the answer, please e-mail me. All who answer correctly, will see their names published in the next newsletter. (Sorry, no other tangible prizes yet!)
Here goes: Who was the founder of the American Red Cross?

Featured Book Of The Month
FROM THE PUBLISHER: “Failure Is Impossible brings together -- for the first time -- a wide-ranging, spirited collection of Susan B. Anthony's speeches, letters, and quotes, linked by contemporary reports and Lynn Sherr's insightful biographical commentary. By allowing the legendary suffragist to speak for herself, Sherr brushes the dust off the Susan B. Anthony icon, introducing a new generation to the brave, brilliant, funny, and, most of all, prescient woman she really was."

Musing Of The Month
Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these. (Susan B. Anthony 1820-1906, American Social Reformer and Women's Suffrage Leader)
