I like to find interesting posts of Wake County origin to share with you on Wednesday, but when someone else does it better, my time and yours is best served by referring you to an original post.
Today I want to send you in the direction of the Wake Forest Museum blog where assistant director, Jennifer Smart, has shared the life story of early civil rights activist, Samuel Nathaniel Vass. She tells his story in all its shades of pain and inspiration. Please read here.
“There is one thing certain and that is: We’ve got to live side by side, so why can’t we be friends, respecting the rights of each other at all times.”
