An Appeal for Human Rights

As part of my participation at the 2016 John Lewis Fellowship in Atlanta Georgia, we read Roslyn Pope’s “An Appeal for Human Rights.” that was initially published on March 9, 1960 in the Atlanta Constitution. Then as now, the “Appeal” details the many injustices faced by African-Americans, and calls on leaders of government and civic life to rectify the outlined injustices. The initial appeal sparked and inspired the student civil-rights protests in Atlanta. The video is viewable under the URL below.

After the fellowship, i published an essay with a reflection of my experiences accessible via the URL below.
The video can be viewed here .
