Paul and Silas, bound in jail / Had no money for to go their bail / Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on / Hold on, (hold on), hold on,

Hold On–I was fortunate to work “Mo Town” the musical this winter. The Civil Rights movement faced an uphill battle. People were jailed and killed. They stood up to the same people that want to take away civil rights.   There was a Poll Tax to vote.  Some citizens were required to “Recite the entire Constitution”.

The voting rights bill was passed in the U.S. Senate by a 77-19 vote on May 26, 1965. After debating the bill for more than a month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bill by a vote of 333-85 on July 9.

 

As I canvass for Lisa Brown for Congress, I will tell people that Lisa Supports the 2nd Amendment but she supports all the Amendments.  I am out today because I REALLY Support the 15th and the 24th!freedom riders
