     What Is A Poll Tax?

•    Poll taxes were fixed fees assessed upon eligible voters as a condition of casting a ballot.
•    Originally, poll taxes were government revenue-raising measures not directly linked to restricting voting rights.
•    Beginning during Reconstruction, the poll tax in the United States was used to prevent Black Americans from voting, especially in Southern states.
•    Ratified in 1964, the Twenty-fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution declared the poll tax unconstitutional in  federal elections.
•    In 1966 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the states could not levy a poll tax as a prerequisite for voting in state a

Pioneering Olympic Medalist - Wilma Rudoph
Nicknamed "Skeeter" for her famous speed, Rudolph qualified for the 1956 Summer Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia. The youngest member of the U.S. track and field team at age 16, she won a bronze medal in the 400-meter relay. After finishing high school, Rudolph enrolled at Tennessee State University, where she studied education. She also trained hard for the next Olympics.

Held in Rome, Italy, the 1960 Olympic Games were a golden time for Rudolph. After tying a world record with her time of 11.3 seconds in the 100-meter semifinals, she won the event with her wind-aided mark of 11.0 seconds in the final. Similarly, Rudolph broke the Olympic record in the 200-meter dash (23.2 seconds) in the heats before claiming another gold medal with her time of 24.0 seconds. She was also part of the U.S. team that established the world record in the 400-meter relay (44.4 seconds) before going on to win gold with a time of 44.5 seconds. As a result, Rudolph became the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field at a single Olympic Games. The first-class sprinter instantly became one of the most popular athletes of the Rome Games as well as an international superstar, lauded around the world for her groundbreaking achievements.

Other Olympic Firsts -
•    In 1908, after winning the 4 x 400 meter relay, John Taylor became the first African American to win gold in the Olympics.
•    And in 1948, Alice Coachman became the first Black woman in the world to win an Olympic gold medal while competing in the high jump.
•    George Coleman Poage became the first Black person to earn a medal at the Olympic Games in 1904. He was a hurdler.

“Equal means getting the same thing, at the same time, and in the same place.”---Thurgood Marshall

Jesus is All the World To Me

1.    Jesus is all the world to me,
my life, my joy, my all;
he is my strength from day to day,
without him I would fall.
When I am sad, to him I go,
no other one can cheer me so;
when I am sad, he makes me glad,
he's my friend.

2.    Jesus is all the world to me,
My friend in trials sore;
I go to Him for blessings, and
He gives them o'er and o'er:
He sends the sunshine and the rain,
He sends the harvest's golden grain;
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain,
He's my friend.
3.    Jesus is all the world to me,
And true to him I'll be;
Oh, how could I this friend deny,
When he's so true to me?
Following him I know I'm right,
He watches o'er me day and night;
Following him by day and night,
He's my friend.
4.    Jesus is all the world to me,
I want no better friend;
I trust him now, I'll trust him when
Life's fleeting days shall end:
Beautiful life with such a friend,
Beautiful life that has no end;
Eternal life, eternal joy,
He's my friend.
