  •  I remember watching movies with my mom (5+ / 0-)

    like Holiday Inn which featured actors in black face and my mother explaining to me how wrong this was and how uncomfortable it made her. She also told me about segregation in Maryland in late 40s and early 50s. I also remember her talking about the death of Dr King and the riots and the intense hurt like the intense hurt of the killing of Michael Collins in the 20s in County Cork and how we white people needed to have understanding in our hearts for the pain felt by especially by African Americans.
