Signing-of-the-Civil-Rights-Act-of-1964-960x1080by Kelli

On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act was passed, which “forbade discrimination on the basis of sex as well as race in hiring, promoting, and firing.”

From The Radiance Foundation comes this powerful video to remind us that we are of “one blood” and that every human life deserves the recognition of their civil rights, including the preborn:

A lot has changed in 50 years. Some things for the better. But the evil of racism will never be overcome until we stop dividing ourselves. The words of Martin Luther King never fail to stir the soul. His speech, “Where Do We Go From Here” delivered in 1967 to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) contained words rarely quoted. On this anniversary of the 50th year of the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 may we remember to walk hand in hand, as one human race. Celebrate civil rights for EVERY human life.
