The real, deal Holyfield backstory behind story about the murders of Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner…the Revelations of the Revolution continue… + Hey, Ya’ll, I AM making faith! On this historic 50th anniversary of the assassinations of civil and voting rights activists James Earl Chaney, Andrew (Andy) Goodman and Michael (Mickey) Schwerner, it would be a disservice, in my humble opinion, to not share the “real, deal Holyfield back story” on the newspaper and TV stories covering the trial of KKK’s Grand Wizard Dragon Edgar Ray Killen, who was convicted nine years ago, also, to this date, to manslaughter charges for being the mastermind behind the deaths of the Philadelphia, MS trio. This version of MS’s real history is long— real, real long, but so factually based, that you WILL NOT read about THIS backstory on the story!! Or, those who are more prominently highlighting THEIR roles in being there with Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner back in the day and/or the re-trial of Killen, will NEVER giv ...

Tonight I have been listening to voices of giants who are no longer physically with us. I began by listening to Maya Angelou giving tribute to Coretta Scott King who died of cancer. Maya began by singing "I opened my eyes to the Lord and I want turn back, I will go, I shall go to see what the end is going to be." Maya, and Coretta, and Rosa, and Martin and Malcolm and Dr. Joseph Lowery were just a few of the voices that I heard tonight. Each of them understood the call of service. Each of them lived their lives trying to call forth the best of humanity, each of them died trying to set us free from not just the physical chains that oppressed us but the psychological ones that were in the end a much greater challenge. I miss their voices because they were such genuine and authentic voices. They had a love for their people and they had a love for freedom and justice for all people. Maya said at Mrs. King's funeral that she would step in now and speak for Coretta who when she was alive fought for the right's ...
Years ago while working as a one man band for WLOS (now called multi media journalist) I had the good fortune of meeting Maya Angelou at Clemson University and interviewing her. I had listened to several of her lectures in the past, but finally getting to meet the woman I held in such high esteem was almost more than I could ask for. During that time of my employment at the station I got to meet and talk with several well known people, from Richard Nixon to Joseph Lowery, but none the likes of this incredible woman. She will be missed. I am thankful her life touched mine if only for a few minutes.
Looks like my one-time sports hero has gone the way of Jesse Jackson, Joseph Lowery, Andy Young and Al Sharpton.
Liberal revolt grows over Obama judges By Adam Serwer A revolt against President Barack Obama’s nominees to the federal bench in Georgia has spread from the civil rights icons who paved the way for Obama’s presidency to the abortion rights movement. The abortion rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America last week announced its opposition to nominee Michael Boggs, joining a coalition of Democratic members of Congress from Georgia and celebrated civil rights leaders like Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis, C.T. Vivian and Joseph Lowery. The group had already been calling for the president to withdraw Boggs, a former Democratic Georgia state representative, and Mark Cohen, an attorney who defended the state’s voter ID law. Both judges were approved as part of a package deal between the White House and Georgia’s two conservative Republican Senators, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson. The deal was put together before Democrats abolished the filibuster for most nominations, but Senate Judiciary Committee C ...
Joseph Lowery was born on October 6, 1921, in Huntsville, Alabama. In 1952, he became pastor for the Warren Street United Methodist Church in Mobile. There, he helped launch a drive to end discrimination in Mobile. In 1957, Lowery helped form the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and in 1968, he became the SCLC's chairman. After retiring, he continued to fight against social injustice.
SOCIALLY CONSERVATIVE JUDICIAL PICK TICKS OFF DEMOCRATS - Jen Bendery: "President Barack Obama has now infuriated abortion rights advocates, civil rights leaders and Democratic lawmakers in his push to confirm a Georgia judicial nominee they argue is too socially conservative. NARAL Pro-Choice America announced Wednesday that it is launching a new campaign to defeat Georgia state Judge Michael Boggs, whom Obama nominated in December to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The group is alarmed by votes that Boggs took -- as a state legislator in the early 2000s -- to 'channel funds to anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers and make a parental consent law even more extreme,' according a petition emailed to NARAL supporters... Boggs has already come under fire from civil rights icons Joseph Lowery and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) -- both of whom were awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Obama -- for a vote Boggs took in opposition to removing the Confederate insignia from G ...
I know I am a day late, but I want to say "Happy Black History Month!" Let us all celebrate prominent African-Americans from the civil rights leaders: Martin Luther King, Jr., Joseph Lowery, Dorothy Height, Andrew Young, Ralph David Abernathy, Atlanta's own Alberta Williams King and other powerful civil rights figures. To great musicians like Whitney Houston for being the only Black woman to have her 1985 debut album debuting on the Billboard 200 and for being the Black female artist to debut "How Will I know" on MTV and breaking down those barriers on MTV. Actors, Basketball, Baseball, Football players, everything we will keep all your accomplishments cherished. Let us not forget our great and hard past, but let's focus on all the good blessings that are coming. The thing that I value and very thankful to have is to get a good college EDUCATION!!! I REALLY thank my ancestors for fighting for this wonderful opportunity so that I and others can have it!!! Means so much to me ;-)
I am so thankful for 2013. I have grown so much this year. I attended 23 funerals, wakes and 9 graduations. This year brought new additions to my family. I stepped back and allowed my peers to grow as a leader and not jump in right away when they looked like they needed help and most of them figured it out and did a great job. I am learning not to freak out when I fail at something. I still am not the best in math, but I am working on it. I joined a church that I am proud to be a member of. I have learned so much about being a better Christian and servant of God. I believe I opened myself up to meeting new people from different countries, faiths and backgrounds. When I saw an injustice no matter how small I did something about. I stop trying to please everyone and just to please God. I sat on panels with some of this country’s most respected civil rights leaders from Dr. Joseph Lowery, Ambassador Andrew Young, to Melanie Campbell Rev, Sharpton and so many more. I spent more time with my younger brother. ...
Today in honor of our veterans of the civil rights struggle, I salute you. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Joseph Lowery etc.

There is one happening now in on Ralph Abernathy and Joseph Lowery.
TODAY IS 6/25 or is it 9/11 Today, is monumental with the changes /invalidation of parts of Section 4 and the inability to enforce Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Today, the safeguards that ensure a people freedom of discriminatory practices in voting are now sanctioned by the U. S. Supreme Court. Their argument was the formula is outdated. Discrimination is not outdated, but the formula IS OUTDATED. Listen do you hear, WHAT I HEAR? Shelby County, Alabama a place where racial discrimination is practiced broke the back of justice for ALL today. I can hear the cries of Dr. M.L.

"IN THE MORNING...will words become Deeds that meet Needs"- Rev.

May I remind you of Coretta Scott King's funeral and the political speeches by Carter, Clinton, and Joseph Lowery!
Just before taking his official inauguration oath, President Obama attended church, receiving the accolades of the media for doing so. Obama, of course, has a rather checkered history with religion; his old pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, used to deliver fiery anti-American, anti-Israel diatribes from the pulpit. At Obama’s first inauguration, Rev. Joseph Lowery gave his invocation by listing racial slurs and implying that white people were responsible for the world’s ills. Now Obama’s newest pastor, Rev. Ronald Braxton, is joining their prestigious company. At Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, Braxton reportedly crafted his speech around Obama’s personal political slogan: “Forward!” Obama, said Braxton, was just like Moses facing the Red Sea: “forward is the only option … The people couldn’t turn around. The only thing that they could do was to go forward.” Obama, said Braxton, would have to overcome all obstacles – like opposition from Republicans, presumably, or the b ...
I often tell youth in my audiences to "Sit up front." "Why?" many of them inquire. Then I break it down: The back is reserved for those who won't make it in life. Their entire being will be defined by sitting in the back, preparing to sneak out, text, or slump down in their seats and sleep. The back is symbolic, especially for African Americans and other people of color who were unjustly placed there as an example of their destiny individually and collectively. When asked WHY she did not move from her seat, Rosa Parks, who was actually seated near the middle not the front, said the following: I was NOT tired; i was just TIRED of giving in. For the sacrifices of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's, Rosa Park's, Malcolm X's, John Lewis's, Joseph Lowery's, Fannie Lou Hamer's, Freedom Riders[ Black and White], and countless others whose names did not make the history books or documentaries, SIT UP FRONT! The only time you should seek to sit in the back is when the front and middle have been occupied!!! SIT UP . ...
We shall, and will continue to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King. However, in the spirit of his honor, I think he'd be appreciative that we also make sure we teach our kids those who lead the struggle before and after he did--unSung Civil Rights heroes and heroines: Medgar AND Myrlie Evers, Betty Shabazz (wife of Malcolm X), Coretta Scott, Hosea Williams, Congressman John Lewis, Bayard Rustin, A. Phillip Randolph, Shirley Chisholm, Fannie Lou Hamer, Joseph Lowery. Who am I missing?
When I get that kind of question, I stress figures like Joseph Lowery and Fred Shuttlesworth Also Freedom Riders.

President Obama no longer disappoints me. After all, I know that he is a pragmatic centrist who functions as would a now defunct moderate or liberal Republican in office. I know that the Dixiecrat-Teaparty-Dominionist Republicans are wholly unacceptable. I know that this President is not a liberal and is a progressive if he can compromise an outcome. There is a difference between an "invocation" and a "benediction". The former begins the proceeding with a prayer, and the latter terminates it. In 2008, the Invocation was Rick Warren and the Benediction was Dr. Joseph Lowery. In 2012, the Invocation will be a woman and non-cleric, the widow of Medgar Evers, and the Benediction will be the Reverend Giglio. Yes, Warren and Giglio are homophobes and right wingers. It is classic Obama.Bush-era continuation of war policies, and homophobes to begin and end his prayerful inaugurations. A *** person, a Spaniard and later Cuban and now US activist, will recite the poem in lieu of Maya Angelou. Yes, I am miffed. I re ...

What a sharp-tongued Joe Lowery said over the weekend 9:24 am November 1, 2012, by jgalloway Updated with new video at 2:55 p.m.: We told you last night about the radio ads put out by an anti-Amendment One group, declaring that Tuesday’s ballot issue on charter schools was an effort to recreate an educational system that separates black and white students. Several of the 60-second spots featured the Rev. Joseph Lowery, the 91-year-old civil rights figure. “Don’t let them resegregate our schools,” Lowery says in the ads. As it turns out, the sharp-tongued Lowery was already an Internet topic on Wednesday – but not for dipping into the charter school debate. Rather, it was for comments made over the weekend in Monroe County, as part of a Southern Christian Leadership Conference trek across the state to encourage support for President Barack Obama. Former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young was there, too. But it was Lowery — the same fellow who gave the benediction at Obama’s 2009 inauguration — who ...
I voted because its my right as a citizen of the United States of America. I will never forget the struggles of the people who made it possible for me today to cast my ballot. As a child of the 60's and witnessing the riots right here in Chicago and the anger and hatred we observed in the south, my vote will always count to make a difference. Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy, Joseph Lowery, Rosa Parks, Brown vs. Board of Education, The Little Rock Nine, Sanitation workers of Memphis, freedom riders, North Carolina sit- ins, and countless other historical events that had to come to pass to get us here today. Go and vote , make a difference. God bless the United States of America.
Joseph Lowery's race charged comments from last weekend are being spun as a 'joke that failed'
POTUS friend, Joseph Lowery, said comments about "white folk" a joke. Why aren't black folk outraged at this racist? |
Re: Rev. Joseph Lowery's remarks on the election. Dear preachers, You chose the pulpit...stay out of politics. I don't care if you're Joseph Lowery, Pat Robertson, or the Pope, your picked a job that requires you treat all of your flock equally and that you not judge them on their political opinions. I'm pretty sure the votes I cast will have jack to do with whether I see heaven or *** How about concentrating on the far more important question of where we'll spend eternity than with who is going to live in the White House for the next four years.
First it was Rev. Jeremiah Wright, now Rev. Joseph Lowery. Some of these Revs need to keep their mouths closed! Smh
Jeremiah Wright is not the only racist “pastor” Barack Obama has run with. . . . Joseph Lowery, the man who delivered the benediction in 2009 at his inauguration said “I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” and that all white people are going to *** . . . The Monroe County Reporter reports, “We’ve turned our backs on the faith,
Longtime African-American civil rights advocate Rev. Joseph Lowery told The Daily Caller that he was joking when he told a get-out-the-vote event that all whites will go to *** “It was a joke
So, Jeremiah Wright wasn't some coincidence. You have Joseph Lowery, you have black liberation theology, Obamas books, etc
Atlanta Journal / Rev. Joseph Lowery. Seems his comments out of context? Thoughtful tho wrong comments follow. Hmm
Joseph Lowery is a RACIST and established that the 1st time he made that joke...apparently, Andrew Young is too...but, we knew that didn't we? This is not the 1st faux pas that a prominent African American has made...those remarks just get glossed over, swept under something, rationalized or ignored...well...I'm offended..oh, that's right, the NAACP doesn't defend me...there, I said it!
Joseph Lowery, if a white man would have said all blacks are going to *** would you and Andrew Young still consider it a joke? Or would you cry racism?
Hey, I already know that FB it's going to have some strong opinions...but comments and people like Joseph Lowery is the reason why racism will stay alive in the Bible belt South! If someone of another race made the same comment that Rev. Lowery made we would be calling Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to protest!
Joseph Lowery is not a Reverand! He is another Wright who claims to be a converted muslim b-hood cult member to a Rev.these people that stand in the pulpit and live in America by their own choice and preach hate to for this Nation and White people! He should be Stood Down and given a ticket Out Of America to somewhere he would rather be. Martin Luther King Jr if he were alive today would throw these black men and women out of America who hate America and are standing with the muslim b-hood cult like the NAACP! He was a Christian and he was not marching to be superior but to be equal and black people have had equal Rigts for a long time, but because of *** like Wright, Lowery, obama, Jesse Jackson Jr the NAACP has changed it's agenda and became a cult and perverted racist sick and twisted, lawless organization that has no place in America. Even the LBGT organization have made their unnatural lifestyle a part of the NAACP and they can't be a race at all! The real American Black people are standing up and ...

Last night, I listened with great admiration to a well known and very popular leader (in the Atlanta Area) make a speech at a town meeting... I hung on to just about every word, but I studied his appearance. And I felt honored to be seated next to the speaker's wife and told her that her husband was one of my favorite speakers(Rev. Joseph Lowery)... Anyway, doing the speech, I noticed that the speaker had monogrammed socks. Intrigued by this, I looked closer and saw that the momogram had four letters, rather than the usual two or three initials. Mind you, the letters didn't seem to have any relationship to the man's name-they were "TGIF." Afther the speech was over and I had complimented the speaker, I turned to Mrs. Lowery and said, "I couldn't help but notice the monogram on Mr. Lowery socks. And like always I'm always asking questions, so I asked Mrs. Lowery, Is there some reason he has chosen 'Thank Goodness It's Friday' for a monogram?" She shook her head and said, Oh Erick, that's not what the lette ...

Normally I do not comment on political views or concerns but however I am compelled to make a statement .

First let me say that I am a minister and I do not support the *** marriage issue on no uncertain terms. I am a democrat and has been all of my life!

Most of us have spent the day remembering... and that's a good thing. Let us close this day with a prayer that looks forward: "Help us, Lord, to work for that day when nation shall not lift up sword against nation, when tanks will be beaten into tractors, when every man and every woman shall sit under his or her own vine and fig tree, and none shall be afraid; when justice will roll down like waters and righteousness as a mighty stream. Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day." Rev. Joseph Lowery
Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Joseph Lowery and all them want to dictate terms but this is not about quieting the truth. For too long we said nothing. Now, we cannot let anyone dictate what we can and cannot say.that's what the devil wants. Last I checked, He sits high, and He looks low. He is on the throne and no one is able to stop the truth and the hand of God. I have nothing to lose and all you brothers and sisters don't have anything to lose. It's not about disrespecting a person. It's about respecting God above persons and their agendas. - Fred C. Rochester

Voting is on my mind, this is a critical vote. Thank God we somewhat secured people's vote before we got to today. But stay awake, make sure you know how and where you'll be voting and bring everyone you know with you. If you know people who can't get out to vote, find someone to take them. Seriously. I received a report and some history on hate groups in America and the numbers of the Patriot and Malitia hate groups have risen from 191 in 2008 to 639 in 2009, 1154 in 2010 to 1608 in 2011. What do you think explains that - the fact that our President is a Democrat? Let's remember the true Patriots who lived, suffered, stood up and died for this country and our Constitution. The people past and present who demand America be true. Jimmie Lee Jackson, Rev James Orange, Medgar Evers, Rev James Reeb, Dr and Mrs Joseph Lowery, Doctor King and my Mom, Viola Liuzzo. VOTE, so many aren't old enough to remember those times but they are not so long behind us and they're trying to overcome us still.

Dr. Joseph Lowery speaks at the Rosa Parks funeral
The grand opening of President Obama's re-election headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia was splendid.Rev. Joseph Lowery, the Civil Rights Icon spoke as well as Congressman John Lewis and Congressman Hank Johnson.Kudos to the Georgia Democratic Party for a job well done. The office opened on historic Auburn Avenue. It was a "fired" up and ready to vote event.
Yesterday, both Jesse Jackson and Joseph Lowery (REAL civil rights heroes, from 'way back in the day') spoke out in support of full equality (yes, that means *** marriage" or "marriage equality" or whatever phrase we're parsing today). And now these words from John Lewis (something approaching a legend or a giant, in my book). Later today, I may search for Coretta Scott King's words on behalf of full equality, Mr. Lewis will suffice for now: "My position is very, very simple. That I fought too long and too hard against discrimination based on race and color, not to stand up and fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation. If you’re going to provide civil rights and equality for everybody, you cannot draw a line, you cannot build a wall. We must respect the dignity and the worth of every human being whether they are *** or straight." ~~ John Lewis

Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery on with the Rev. Al need I say more? Injustice anywhere threatens justice everywhere! -MLK
Amazing how times have changed I was watching The Jefferson's (Florence vs. Louise so6/ep10 1979) today and George called the man a *** on TV a National Syndicated Sitcom Now a days they are trying to strike the word down as if it was never written. And here during a time when everything that was did and said was under the watch of heavy hitters like Jessie Jackson, and Joseph Lowery. Why was this allowed?
Did anyone see Rev. Joseph Lowery on CNN with Don Lemon? What a cool interview!! This guys is a reverend and marched with Dr. Martin Luther King during the civil rights era and was speaking on *** marriage/rights. See if you can search it later online if you missed it!!
Rev. Al Sharpton along with other Civil Rights leaders, including Rev. Joseph Lowery, release open letter to Black America urging us not to fight over Obama's marriage equality decision and instead focus on battles we collectively believe in. What do you think, Newsone Fam? Can the differences be put aside -- specifically within the church?
I had the honor of meeting Rev. Joseph Lowery yesterday. WOW!
