Freedom to vote ~ theme for February 2020

This year's theme for Black History month is "African Americans and the Vote."  2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) which gave black men the right to vote following the Civil War.  In this important voting year, Martin Luther King, Jr. gives us something more to think about:
"The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live.  Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power.  We have guided missiles and misguided men."  ~~~ MLK
