“Freedom” and “equality” are words used throughout the foundational documents and anthems of our nation. On the surface, every person in the US should have the same access to resources and opportunities to build a fruitful life. The reality is harsher than the ideal. For centuries, people of color have faced obstacles, challenges, injustices, and brutalities because of their skin color or nation of origin. Recent times have highlighted the 400-year-old struggle of racism and inequality in America. To make Dr. Martin Luther King’s “dream” a reality, we must educate ourselves about the past and dedicate ourselves to work towards the freedom and equality we’ve shouted about since our country’s inception.
