Chicago, IL (March 20,2015) - Diane Nash refused to walk across the Edmond Pettus Bridge with President Barack H. Obama after he neglected to properly honor her and former husband Reverend James L. Bevel for successfully authoring, organizing, directing and successfully executing “the 1965 Selma Nonviolent Right To Vote Movement”, for which they received the Rosa Parks Award, SCLC’s highest achievement award. In fact the President didn’t even mention the man most responsible for him being in office Reverend James L. Bevel. He the president didn’t mind hanging out with murderers.
No honorable person would talk about the Montgomery Bus Boycott without giving generative honors to Rosa Parks. The bus boycott would not have taken place had she not acted. So it is with the Selma Nonviolent Right To Vote Movement which was written and executed by Reverend James L. Bevel and Diane Nash.
Sunday, March 15th closed out the first two week celebration with a celebration of Diane Nash and Reverend James L. Bevel on Know Thyself Radio blogtalk/warrenhouston (replay available). Mr. Houston decided to celebrate their history by interviewing Helen L. Bevel, wife of Reverend James L. Bevel. In this interview proper tribute was given to this dynamic duo who were recipients of SCLC’s highest award under the honorable leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President and Dr. Ralph David Abernathy, Vice President.
Helen Bevel asks the question, “have they been honored enough?” Let her know what you think on her blog at anewbeing.com
