Thank you and congratulations on your article "Sister of Selma" on May 13.

I truly enjoyed it because I also am a product of the civil rights era. Very few people actually remember those trying times in the 60s, so I was elated to see someone speak on the topic of civil rights.

Most Americans agree slavery was wrong, but most do not know the struggle is not over! Sister Barbara Moor's speech was vital to the upcoming JUNETEENTH celebration. Because there are many who still are standing and fighting for civil and equal rights.

I'd like to invite anyone to our celebration this June 14-15 at LeClaire Park. This celebration is just as important as July 4th and Cinco de Mayo.

Larry Bell,
