On June 8, 1964, the night before the organized march would take place, the group of protestors gathered in the First African Baptist Church, where they would also begin the march the next day, for one last speech by Rev. T. Y. Rogers, who was the pastor of the church and the head of the Tuscaloosa Citizens for Action Committee.
The 10-4 Corporation, a Human Rights Organization, focuses on “Bringing Divided Societies Together.” The Board of Directors is composed of a diversified group of individuals from various communities that is a mirrored reflection of the American Melting Pot. The non-profit organization promotes peace, harmony, justice and reconciliation in America. The desired outcome of The 10-4 Corporation is to focus on racial reconciliation by inspiring all individuals to take a deeper look at race relations in their communities.
The 10-4 Corporation strives to reconcile racially diverse parties and entities to full agreement regarding what is to be done in their communities. Strategic development of commitments regarding mutual forgiveness will be formed to seek forgiveness of any unjust treatment received. Society must be willing to engage in a comprehensive dialogue which will lead to a reflection on what has failed and how to promote racial reconciliation. One must remember that love is patient and kind not mean and ugly. Unfortunately, Sunday mornings are still the most segregated hours in the nation.
