4/19/2010*Nashville,TN*A Silent March With Civil Rights Movement Legends Rev. James Lawson, Diane Nash & Rev. C.T. Vivian


April 19, 2010 A SILENT MARCH

From Tennessee State University and 28th Avenue North to City Hall, Nashville, TN. To celebrate the 1960 Nashville "Model" Campaign Against Jim Crow Law, Segregation and Racism And All Their Parts.

In the early morning of April 19, 1960, the home of Attorney and Mrs. Z. Alexander Looby was bombed. The Movement quickly organized the Silent March which began at 11:00 am. It was the first major march of the Southern Nonviolent Freedom Movement. There were no signs or even talk. IT WAS A SILENT MARCH. It surprised the very wide spread opposition to economic and social and racial justice in Nashville and across the country. The superb dignity and discipline of that nonviolent technique impacted Middle Tennessee and the nation.

THAT 1960 bomb is today's metaphor. Millions of people and families in our nation are being devastated by:
· The assault against the family,
· violence, violence against women
· Unemployment, destabilized jobs, and the unnecessary abolition of the manufacturing                  sector of our economy,
· Poverty, and the increase of poverty among children and women
· The massive shortage of affordable, quality housing,
·  The lack of health care,
·  Greed, materialism, and plantation capitalism, and exorbitant interest rates
·  The monopolization of economic power in the hands of a few,
·  Militarization, the war on crime, and the war on drugs
·  The prison-industrial complex, and the militarization of the economy
·  Functional illiteracy, the deliberate limiting of qualified teachers, and the intentional demise       of quality public education,
· The absence of effective and good governments,
· The failures of both political parties,
· The "powers that be" lying to and deceiving the people
· Oligarchy, plutocracy  and corporatocracy.
· The trillions of tax dollars going for private profit and the military overseas,
· Environmental destruction,  
· The continuing rapaciousness of racism,
· The reign of hatred and disrespect in public discourse and
· Sexism,
THE 2010 SILENT MARCH is an urgent Call for "We, the people" to launch nonviolent struggle and nonviolent direct action in the 21st century for equality, liberty and justice for all and for making Nashville and every place in our nation a "beloved community". We deserve a more noble ethos for children and families. We can make a finer Nashville and state.
