Obama: Women made civil rights movement happen



WASHINGTON (AP) — To President Barack Obama, women of the civil rights movement were "the thinkers and the doers" whose toil and sacrifice benefited everyone in the country.

Obama said black women were the "foot soldiers" who did the behind-the-scenes work of strategizing boycotts and organizing marches while others received the credit ...

Hmmm.. There are always two ways to look at a story. IDK about the experience of others, but this is how it was in my home.

My Dad had a very important career. He worked long, hard, hours, but he was committed to the cause. He read every significant book relevant to the movement of the 60's. And, he discussed it over dinner with our family. My Mother was a SAHM. She represented our family by marching on Washington, participating in NAACP events, etc. Dad would have participated if he could have. His heart was there. But, someone had to pay the bills.

Thanks for sharing your personal account. And I'm sure this was the situation in most cases. We must be careful however, and this goes for the president as well, to not cause division in the ranks by giving women credit over their men, or vice versa, when it comes to the Black movement.

We are already divided enough as a people. For instance, any time we differ largely on the issue of deserved Reparations, its bad.
