CIVIL RIGHTS! We all have civil rights. Some people hire me to enforce those rights. Other times, I seek to protect civil rights through my free speech into a microphone. Or through my penning columns as Columnist at Large for the Colorado Sun.
The passing of Rep. John Lewis has got me focused on civil rights and the sacrifices necessary to make civil rights happen. Bloody Sunday in Selma concerned the right to vote and joined in line that Sunday to try to cross that Edmund Pettus Bridge were young and brave John Lewis, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, all now of blessed memory. Three American civil rights heroes. There were others. There still are lots of others.
We commemorate Colorado Day by celebrating civil rights champions with the only child of Rabbi Heschel, Dartmouth College Professor Susannah Heschel. In Craig’s Lawyers’ Lounge is law professor and unfair housing expert, Professor Stefan Krieger. The veteran law school professor had his whole life changed by MLK and Rabbi Heschel. Andrew Struttman is a bright GOP political pro who put it all on the line to call out Michelle Malkin on the pages of the Denver Post. He gives a brilliant interview on this week’s episode. Troubadour Dave Gunders brings us back to Earth with a special song and beautiful words.
Enjoy your civil rights and get ready to win with wisdom and a good soul on this week’s episode of The Craig Silverman Show.
