About Our Guest:
As a Founding Director of the Poor Peoples Campaign Inc., incorporated in the state of Illinois, this 501c-3 organization was dedicated to illuminating Dr. Martin Luther King’s
original concept of the second phase of the civil rights movement, which drew attention to poverty across the color line, and creating economic engines in the impoverished areas of the United States. Today more that ever, Dr.
Kings plan to address poverty is a cornerstone in revitalizing urban America.
In September of 2012 Floyd Davis was recognized for his dedication of service by President Obama by receiving the Drum Major of Service Award as a testament to his work in Chicago over the years.
About The Tougaloo Nine:
At 11 a.m. on March 27, 1961, nine students from the historically black Tougaloo College walked into the all-white Jackson (Miss.) Public Library. Joseph Jackson Jr., their leader, approached the circulation desk.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tougaloo Nine were a group of African-American students at Tougaloo College who participated in civil disobedience by staging sit-ins of segregated public institutions in Mississippi in 1961.
Voices of Wisdom is named so, to keep the voice of Rachel Berry alive through our platform. She created the group Voices of Wisdom because everyone knows something that someone else needs to know, officially know as The VOW Network on Facebook.
