That's the theme of the July 4th event this year in Columbia, hosted by the state NAACP, in the wake of the Charleston Nine massacre.
It's a shame that it took such a tragedy to bring this long-standing issue to light once again (it's been argued in state legislature since 1990, after all). It also provides opportunity for establishment of an appropriate and well-deserved historic status to those we lost, however.
At the memorial service for state senator and Rev. Clementa Pinckney, President Obama summed it up best. And this video, produced by Brian Harmon, captures the apex of that address in its promotion of the July 4th event.
