I grew up as a boy in Western North Carolina during the 1950s and the 1960s. There were no people of color serving in the United States Senate or the House of Representatives. Instead, ministers, school teachers, and other professionals were the prominent representatives of the black community. They represented the black community but had no official seat at the table to influence community development or policy. A railroad track divided the black and white communities. Both communities were law-abiding taxpayers. The white community had sidewalks; their streets had no potholes. The white community had water sewers years before they were commonplace in the black community. Representation is significant; therefore, people of color want a seat at the table. It is about preserving their rights and children’s rights. Leveling the playing field is the goal of all civil rights activists.
