Stepping Back and Moving Forward . . .

African American news from Pasadena - News - Celebrating July Fourth by remembering our struggles in civil rights.... . . As we celebrate the independence of the United States of America and the birth of democracy, let's remember some of our country's growth pains toward independence for all . . .  

In an exerpt from one of the most famous speeches, "The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro," by Frederick Douglass, we can gain a perspective from 1852.  Mr. Douglass takes us back to the beginnings of this country when its people were British subjects and brings us to 1852. 

This week's editorial, "Civil Rights Disappointment as Supreme Court Ruling Sets Us Back!", offers a perspective of Black history in the United States of America from the 1960s through today. 

Our country's growth pains toward independence and freedom for all have been many.  And, while they continue, we can still remember to celebrate July Fourth as we move forward.
