Remember Old Jim Crow

Your new year’s resolutions: 1) Read more. 2) Educate yourself about this upcoming presidential election and keep another power-mad, oil-hungry idiot out of the White House.

You can add check marks beside both after attending today’s opening reception at the Miami-Dade Library Auditorium. From 6:30 to 8 p.m., you can witness “Oh Freedom Over Me,” an exhibit from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

The exhibition includes significant documentary images from the heat of the Civil Rights era, and captures the pot-boiling change of Freedom Summer 1964. Stark, stunning black-and-white images portray the struggle to give black people equal rights in this country. It’s a chilling reminder of the shocking, still fairly recent past that reveals how far we’ve come.... Hey, this year a black man and a woman are vying for the seat of ultimate power.
