Memorial Day Remembrance


In his op-ed piece, "Forgetting Why We Remember" by David Blight talks about "the surprising origins and true meaning of Memorial Day," and explains how black Charlestonians "created for themselves, and for us, the Independence Day of a Second American Revolution."

Forgetting Why We Remember can be read at http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/30/opinion/30blight.html
