Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Are Civil Rights Events More About Looking Back Than Looking Forward?


Dr. Rose Sanders joined Roland Martin on “The Roland Martin Show” to discuss the Selma 50th Anniversary Jubilee,  commemorating the 50th Anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the Selma-to-Montgomery March, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The commemorative celebrations will take place March 5th – March 8th, 2015.

During the second hour of “The Roland Martin Show,” Martin poses the question, do you believe that too many of our Civil Rights events today are more about nostalgia, are more about looking back as opposed to organizing and mobilizing today?

Martin believes we should never forget the sacrifices made in the past but we need to focus on moving people in the next generation to action, organizing them, teaching them, instructing them on how to do what is right and what is just.
