    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    The battle against White supremacy and struggle for human rights is like a house

    If it it goes neglected and un maintained for 30 years, no one can live in it or with it!

    It's kind of nice having a black man in office during this 50 year mark. I wonder what other strides would we have made in the next 50 years.

    Peace!

    In 50 more years I hope not. Maybe we need to take this in 5 year increments. There are a lot of fronts we have to work on, and we have to do some at the same time.

    Peace!

    Yes sir bro. Enki, its fittingly nice that our President and First Family is black. Martin would love it.

    To your question on the next fifty (50) years, M. Dyson, of all the speakers, said it best: "He had a Dream, We need a Team."

    Without team-work, organizations, grass-roots all working in sync; it'll be a repeat of, we still got a ways to go.

    But, vows were made today, Lowery hit it dead on stating the true purpose of the March;


    "We come to Washington to Commemorate and go home to Agitate"


    If we stay the course, then the 5 year increments you mentioned, should each reflect fruitful progress.
