As a highlight to the Congressional Black Caucus foundation widow of Dr. David Abernathy Mrs Abernathy the honoree of the night sets the tone for President Obama to speak of the Rights of Women.  Mrs Abernathy spoke about the rights that continues to be a battle for Afro Americans and women.   She also spoke of the right for us to understand the suffering that we’ve gone through, unlike the Jews she stated that our suffering was on this land not another land and we should not forget as many Jews want us to forget why they remember the Holocaust.  She also made it clear that to many entities are trying to overlook the fact that we have a black President she said she makes it very clear she is proud of President Barack Obama and Proud that He is a Black Man and she is not a shame to say that she is proud that he is a Black Man as the President.  “I tell my Jewish friends I tell my German friends I tell my Europe friends yes my daughter lives in Germany yes my family lives in Europe but I remind them every day that they are trying to be like Americans and yes many of them are proud of President Obama but I make it clear I am proud of President Barack Obama the Black President”.

She stated very clearly very strongly standing flat foot standing tall speaking strong My Husband My Brother Dr Martin Luther King all died for us to have the right to vote, and it’s a shame how these young folk and yes some of these old folk are taking the voting rights for granted.  Yes it’s a shame that we are fighting 50 years later for the same right to vote it’s a shame that we have some in Congress and the Senate that have the same hate, it’s 50 years later for the black man to vote.  Thank GOD for Mrs Abernathy.  50 years later the King Family Martin Luther King the 3rd, Rev. Bernice king, Ralph Abernathy the 3rd Mrs Abernathy all stop for a historical moment frozen in time with taken by Photos by Hunter Photos of Detroit Times Media Group.
