People who marched with us. That's Richard Kanegis sitting down.
I'm pleased to say I saw the movie "Selma" before it stopped showing in the area. Excellent movie on the importance of voting. No, voting is not the only tool in the activist's toolchest and it sure would be nice to have better choices, but it's certainly worth fighting for.

Glenn with Cheri Honkala who ran as the Green Party Vice-Presidential candidate in 2012.
One of the things that familiarized me with the themes and characters in "Selma" was the book Parting The Waters, all about the early years of the Civil Rights Movement.
