Anyone else remember the tv movie "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman" starring Cicely Tyson? Came out in the early 70s. About a girl born into slavery, lives a long, interesting life, finally witnessing the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

I had a sudden vision of the climax when the 110-yr-old Miss Jane walks shakily up to the "white" water fountain, takes a drink, and nobody arrests her.

I hope despite all the nonsense from the GQP that nobody will harass Black Americans at their polling stations next year either. I hope they can imagine all of them as Miss Jane.

Happy Juneteenth Eve!
