Remembering Marion Barry

Six years ago the Honorable Mayor of Washington DC, Marion Barry died. Many residents in the District of Columbia called Mr. Barry, Mayor For Life for the many positive program he initiated in the city. Today, I remember not Marion Barry’s municipal career but his life before he moved to DC. When Mr. Barry confronted head on the racism and oppression of white supremacy in the Deep South as a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee(SNCC).
