19. Yes, I snagged it for my journal!

It's true even though many deny it.

As you can see I found those pics in Democratic Primaries because.. Dem candidates were there where Hillary was honored.

"Clinton, Sanders, Booker, Brown speak at Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast. Hillary honored."

7. Selma sets a stage for Democrats

From the Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/selma-event-a-showcase-for-democratic-figures/2019/03/03/9e8f55b6-3ae6-11e9-a2cd-307b06d0257b_story.html?utm_term=.4f171f0f4266

Clinton appeared at a “unity breakfast” in her honor. While some strategists believe her 2016 campaign struggled in part because of a failure to turn out enough African American voters, no such lack of enthusiasm was on display Sunday.

A small choir serenaded Clinton with a song about moving forward, rising up, and climbing higher mountains. “Hillary,” one verse went, “you’re still rising.” One speaker made a request for “when” she is president. Another outlined a justification for inducting her into the

National Voting Rights Museum Women’s Hall of Fame. Some wore T-shirts that said, “Hillary is my president.”

“She was elected president of the United States, and it was stolen from her,” said state Sen. Hank Sanders, as a breakfast crowd of about 700 rose to its feet. “It was stolen from her by the FBI. . . . It was stolen from her by the Russians.”

I'm sure there were also politicians who were there primarily to support themselves.

35. I'm sure that most people in attendence were aware that HRC was there (in part) to be honored

for a lifetime of walking the walk, rather than a few moments of symbolically crossing a bridge with the cameras rolling.



Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton highlighted the Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast on Sunday at Wallace Community College-Selma.

Clinton received the 2019 International Unity Award and was inducted into the Women’s Hall of Fame by former Senator Hank Sanders and his wife, Rose Sanders.

“Women have a hard time when they seek position of power and fight for women’s rights,” Hank Sanders said. “She had to fight to become a Senator and fight to become Secretary of State.”

The capacity crowd in WCCS Gymnasium gave a thunderous standing ovation for Clinton, a former U.S. Presidential candidate in the Democrat party.
