fear is a good thing. I explained that fear isn’t bad, it just reminds us that there is something new, something with which we are not familiar and need to be alert to. The only time fear is a bad thing is when we let it stop us from doing that which we want to do.

the struggle didn’t end in 1865. In another five years, the fifteenth amendment gave African American men the right to vote on February 3, 1870.
