There are many signs we are becoming a kinder, more just society. We are now going through the 50-year anniversaries of the turbulent 1960s when black Americans sought equal rights. I remember my hometown where we had separate schools, separate drinking fountains and separate waiting rooms, restrooms and public entrances. Our neighborhoods were segregated and so were our churches. Black people were not allowed into restaurants or soda fountains, motels or the front seats of buses. Or in the voting booth. All of this was legal.
