Primus Mootry: 1963 march: The more things change, the more they stay the same

(Continued)

In just a few days, President Obama will be addressing a gathering at the Lincoln Memorial as part of the national celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Great March. We should all be proud that America has its first African-American president. And, at the same time, we should all be ashamed that problems of race and class still persist in this great land of freedom, equality and opportunity. It's about justice, folks, and the time for justice is always "now."

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
