Recording information by 3steel

judges entry rnd#2

This song deals with the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The line in the lyrics that mentions "The law passed in '64" is the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The law was supposed to prohibit discrimination in public places, the government and employment.

The lyrics in this song deal with the need to resist complacency and never resign yourself to racial injustice as the status quo.

Happy New Year to you all. God bless all the SS angels we have lost in 2020 may they RIP<3

It is amazing how songs can sometimes express the struggle and fight for justice so much more effectively than mere spoken words!

I remember this cool song!

You have the perfect voice for it too!

Loved my listen ****** hugss Jackie
