The Mizzou football team stood-up and stood together and the University of Missouri president was forced to resign. They didn’t do this alone, they didn’t do this in a vacuum. They succeeded in concert with other collegiate activists. They are the successor sons of the Black Lives Matter movement that has gone nationwide and closer to home, sprang from our own Ferguson. They stand upon broad shoulders stretching back to before I was born, but this week they must have made all their parents proud. They certainly made me feel so. Such clear-cut victories for civil rights are rare enough and this one should be celebrated!
