We The People

Americans will be grappling with a number of sensitive and critical issues throughout 2013 and beyond.  Some new, some old and some never-ending – concerns about race, religion, violence, politics, guns, climate change, war and civic responsibility are just some of the issues that may polarize all or segments of the nation.  We The People will bring awareness to different viewpoints in the hopes of educating its readership.  Please be encouraged to join in and share your perspective.

On this Day

In 1963 Black Students were admitted to the University of Alabama despite  Gov. George Wallace standing in the doorway of Foster Auditorium to prevent them from entering and  registering.  This was a symbolic attempt by Wallace to keep his inaugural promise of “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever” in order to stop the desegregation of schools.
