Fucking 1964? They got the right to vote only 5 years before you send a man to the moon? After Michael Jackson was born?

Is actually recommend watching the movie Selma. Black people could vote (1964) but they had to take literacy tests to register, so they'd make them guess the number of marbles in the jar or recite the names of every single president, or every senator in history before they could. And you also had to know someone who could vote so they could recommend you to vote but black communities didn't have or know anyone who could recommend them. That's completely what the march on Selma was about.2
