Tribute to The “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin
The Gettysburg Address
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal”
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it, as a final resting place for those who died here, that the nation might live. This we may, in all propriety do. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow, this ground– The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have hallowed it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here; while it can never forget what they did here.
It is rather for us, the living, to stand here, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people by the people for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
It’s “White Shirt Day” at United Auto Workers. Today marks the anniversary of the 1937 sit-down strike that gave union bargaining rights at the automaker. The mission was to send a message that “blue collar” workers deserve the same respect as their management counterparts. Don’t get your shirt any dirtier than the boss gets his.
Some 1,300 sanitation workers begin what would become a a 64-say strike in Memphis, ultimately winning union recognition and wage increases. The April 4 assassination in Memphis of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who had been taking an active role in mass meetings and street actions, brought pressure on the city to settle the strike (1968) http://www.unionist.com
