The photo shows a handcuffed, 21-year-old Sanders being led to a police cruiser by two police officers. According to the Tribune, the photo was taken on “August 1963 near South 73rd Street and Lowe Avenue, which is in the Englewood neighborhood.”

NOW is the time

We have never had such an opportunity, (will we let it pass?)

"Where was ..[I] 53 years ago?" I was trying to understand why my Dad left White Amercica, and took time off work (on Aug 28th, 1963) to go to MLK's March on Washington.

Did you ever figure it out?

Yes, but to my bad, it took far too long. To my defense though, I was not even a teenager in 1963.

will we let it pass?- With the D/R racket, its not up to you. As Iowa and Nevada have already shown.
