As I click the shutter of my camera at Saint Paul Cathedral a member of the church with her stern eyes engage into the barrel of my camera. I thought about Marvin Gaye song, ‘Mercy, Mercy Me.’
At the airport waiting for my flight….I keep thinking about music and how it connect us with other people which allows us to express ourselves in ways that is different from speech and writing.
"Woah, ah mercy mercy me
Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind that blows
From the north and south and east.” - Marvin Gaye. Photo by @shepreebright (at Cyril E King Airport)
While on the ferry to Saint John, George Jackson expressed his sentiments about America, “America is 2 for 1 power + money = greed. We have no more morals.” @everydayblackamerica photo by @shepreebright (at St. John, US Virgin Islands)
Travel to Albany Georgia with Mr Lonnie King, co-founder of the Atlanta Student Movement (left) and Mr Charles Black, President of ASM for the Georgia Civil Rights Trail dedication of the Albany Movement at Shiloh Baptist Church. The Albany movement began at Shiloh Baptist Church, November 1961. A coalition of black improvement associations and student activists from SNCC and Albany State College, protest group set an unprecedented goal : the desegregation of entire community, from bus stations to lunch counters. Demonstrations over two years resulted in the dentition of 1,500 protesters. The participation and repeated arrests of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr brought national attention to the Albany Movement.
Mr. King and Black explain that revolutionary change was in the air and there was no turning back. I enjoyed the ride. @shepreebright @ruddyroye
