Civil freedom

When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree by the river of truth and tell the whole world "No, you move." I've always believed that all you need is one man to make a difference, to stand up when others are told to sit down, to speak loudly for those who have no voice and to fight the good fight. As long as freedom may be threatened, Captain America must follow his destiny wherever it may lead. #marvel

Mugshots of Freedom Riders, Jackson Mississippi, 1961. I love their faces and the range of emotions. All the tiny and not so tiny smiles, as if they know something. I wonder if they knew they'd win.

The Mississippi Freedom Riders arrested in Jackson, Miss in 1961. These are the faces of the Civil Rights Movement that are rarely spoken of.  It wasn't just black folks who marched, but Jewish and white american who also spoke out and fought for civil rights. Some went to jail and some died. Lest we all forget the price that was paid for all of us.

Wanda lost more than her confidence. They all lost a bit more than just what's on here. Steve lost some of the people he called family. Natasha is forced to be a government pawn again. Wanda lost her freedom, her confidence, her trust in people.....
