Important Anniversaries In Our Nation's History In August [Monday Memo]
Last week we saw two very important anniversaries in our nation’s history that have impacted our lives today.
August 26th marked the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote.
However, despite this initiative aimed to make voting accessible to everyone, loopholes and laws that are now deemed to be discriminatory prevented fair voting accessibility to black women and other non-whites.
August 28th was the 57th anniversary of the famous March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have A Dream” speech.
