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. Think about that for a moment because he broke a code of Jim Crow, Sammy Younge was murdered in cold blood. Simply because he wanted the right to a gas station's bathroom facility.
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.
