EJI Calendar 5/7


1955. In Belzoni, Mississippi, NAACP member Rev. George Lee is fatally shot after angering local whites when he attempted to register to vote.

People say that voting doesn’t matter. If it doesn’t why were white men willing to kill African-Americans wishing to vote? Why do so many state legislatures even now dream up new ways to prevent minority and poor citizens from voting?

Voting matters. Now anyone can register without being shot. Register. Vote. In primaries as well as general elections.

PS – Apologies for the blurry picture today.
