High Coo – July 2 – Civil Rights Act of 1964

Fifty-eight years ago, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson enacted the law to end discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1964

In the picture above, the African-American standing immediately behind the seated president is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who said “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Here is today’s haiku:

Civil Rights?

Two steps forward then

one step back, let’s not lose hope.

All life matters now.
