Civil Rights History: April 15, 1960 — Equal Time…

Just a short note, to link to Ella Josephine Baker (see masthead), and the formation of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, 56 years ago, this day.

In a smallish sense, this is “equal time” — given my prominent mentions of Dr. King. Not in any manner to diminish anything Dr. King did, but to acknowledge that Fundi Baker worked tirelessly behind the scenes, believing that genuinely “strong people would not need a strong leader.”

She never sought the lime-light, but was truly a driving force in all Americans’ continuing march toward full equality.

Now you know. Have a wonderful, Spring sun-drenched weekend, one and all — I’m out!
