As stated in the article written by C. Virginia Fields on Huffington Post: “Those early-life experiences taught me much, including the importance of voting. In fact, I believe that the worse threat to democracy is a disengaged electorate, and the knock-down, drag-out fight in this presidential election certainly has the power to turn us off to voting. However, just as African Americans were not deterred from the voting booth under the threat of Jim Crow, we must not fail now to make our voices heard through our vote.  Yes, vote we must! In presidential and statewide races, we must turn out in record numbers and vote to better our futures, and those of our children. Just as Dr. King urged back in Montgomery in 1965:

Let us march on ballot boxes until race-baiters disappear from the political arena….
Let us march on ballot boxes until we send to our city councils, state legislatures,
and the United States Congress, men who will not fear to do
justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God.”
