Never Diminish Nor Forget Sammy Younge Jr.'s Ultimate Sacrifice

53 years ago, January 3, 1966,​ Sammy Younge Jr. was fighting for something supposedly guaranteed him by the Constitution of the United States, the right to use bathroom facilities.

Sammy Younge, who lost a kidney while in the US Navy wanted to have the respect he deserved as a man. Sammy Younge was murdered because he just happened to be black in the United States a country that spewed racial hatred and cared little about justice.

Remember Sammy Younge and never forget his ultimate sacrifice.
