Continue To Rest Easy Mr. Mayor
For way too many Americans of African Descent the late Marion Barry was the mayor caught smoking crack in a hotel room on video with a known prostitute. But, to those who battled on the front lines with a young Marion Barry during the tenuous civil rights years. SNCC activist Marion Barry was a fearless warrior willing to lay down his life to gain absolute citizenship for so many of our ancestors and elders who were denied this right due to the color of their skin. I choose today to remember Marion Barry, 7 years after his death as that man who refused to bow down to the injustices that were being inflicted by our white oppressors. Rest Easy Mr. Mayor.
