The Civil Rights Revival is a special series presented by Infocus TV aimed at increasing political awareness, providing election updates and direct perspectives from
the Infocus team, during the election season and beyond.
Why is political awareness nearly unavoidable? This is the first time in history that I can recall so many major disruptions in our society; from social unrest and a confrontation with police violence to an international pandemic crippling the planet and the world economies.
It's hard to avoid the fact that politics is front and center everywhere; on social media, in the streets of America, and in the news everywhere. Legions of celebrities are talking about it and involved, highlighting the fact that politics determines how our society works and urging their fans to be a part of the solution, awareness is essential. The curtains have been pulled back and now it's out in the open where people and groups in our nation can express their opinions. If there's one clear reminder that political awareness is unavoidable, take a look at the life journey and recent passing of Congressman John Lewis.
VOTING IS ONE OF THE GREATEST TOOLS FOR EQUAL RIGHTS AND EQUALITY
The late great Congressman John Lewis showed us that if you don't participate in the political process you give up your voice, your rights, and even your freedoms. He made it clear that voting was one of the most powerful tools in the civil rights movement. He put his life on the line advocating for a fair and just system, the right to vote and an equal and just society.
To John Lewis and so many other legendary patriots, avoiding the issues plaguing America can be disastrous. He chose to live a life of service highlighted by the fact that political awareness and activism was and is key to effectuate change. To get the results he fought for, he was willing to get into a little GOOD Trouble to help this country reach its full potential.
