I have never understood it, that people should have the right to subject another because the oppressed skin color is different. It is a great thing that to combat it.

A beautiful piece of art. The fight goes on as some states in the South continue to try to deny the vote to people of color.

Il lui a fallu beaucoup de courage et de détermination pour cela.
J'ai un profond respect pour ces femmes et ces hommes qui se sont élevés contre le racisme.
Ces fresque sont un juste hommage à Rosa Parks, merci de nous les faire découvrir.

Bonne année 2016 !
