Some rare gems no longer collecting dust:

The 3:28 mark stirs something.

Oh, to see that kind of activism again,,,,,

Yes, I felt encouraged while watching it. But will a similar life/death issue be required to bring about such community activism?

I love seeing these videos. I've slowly been putting up some of my older Indiana activism videos on YouTube. I have most of them on the computer now and just need to finish the project.

Thank you for posting this!!
