Sorry: 501c3 not found.

DISCLAIMER:

We have been hearing a lot of interesting things about a Francesca Amato. Now, before we really dig into this, I must say that nobody with WoC has ever heard of this woman prior to this article. All information provided is purely based on our observations, findings, and creditable source information. All source information was given anonymously. Their names will not be provided in this article, in email, or private messaging.

OBJECTIVE I

When we began this article, we were actually looking into P4P’s North Carolina chapter leader, Danielle Hatcher. We had heard rumors of corruption within the “501c3” and decided it was something worth looking into. Upon looking into Hatcher, we had stumbled across an image posted to Social Media. That image is below.

We found this to be rather interesting. Although we don’t know why she is currently in jail, a disturbing rumor has circulated regarding the advocate. The rumor states as follows:

At some point, while in jail, Ms. Hatcher took it upon herself to use feces as a method for “finger painting.”

As we stated, this is a rumor and is currently not proven. However, it was this rumor that lead us to look a little bit deeper. What is this organization that she helps manage?

OBJECTIVE II

We did a 501c3 check on P4P. The reason for this was because, according to the organization’s website, they had a 501c3 status. Well, we looked and we found nothing called, “Punished for Protecting,” “Punished for Parenting,” “Punished 4 Protecting,” or “Punished for Parenting.” To put this blatently, as far as we can tell, this 501c3 does not exist; but don’t they claim to be one?

Yes, yes they do.

We gave them a benefit of a doubt. Maybe they meant charity rather than 501c3. We conducted an identical search with the same results.

So if they aren’t found on New York’s list of charities or 501c3 organizations, what exactly are they? Well, I don’t think we need to state it but we know you can compose the conclusion. Since we couldn’t find it on any list, we decided to look into the founder.

OBJECTIVE III

Francesca Amato is the woman behind this “organization.” According to a Facebook page (depicted below,) she is running for NY governor. Well, we already found one issue, so we looked into that as well. What we found was equally as disturbing as the previous findings; there were no obtainable records that she is, or has, ever ran for a political position…and yet she makes the claim.

To be a politician, that means you have to actually be running, or are currently in office. When we checked into this, as previously mentioned, there were no obtainable records. The reason these records are unobtainable is purely because they do not exist.

But, as we also stated, she claims to be actively running. Now, we could point out other problems on this page, such as her using a gmail account rather than an actual account linked to her “political” website, but we decided to just briefly mention the one issue.

CONCLUSION

Based upon what we had seen and the evidence, as it stands. We are presently at the conclusion that her, the organization, and its leaders, are scamming desperate people out of their money. But, as it always stands within the WoC policy, should we find evidence that contradicts this information, we will happily revise this article.

Sources have, on seperate occasions, told us who she associates with. In fact, we have articles on several of them for corruption, etc. Currently, the only supporting evidence we have, is a video that Ms. Amato herself did. In the video, she makes mention of good people being slandered. It is, at this point, we briefly saw the profile of a person that we had deemed to be a very real danger to others. However, by all means, come to your own conclusions.

WoC calls out a cyber bully

Update: 

It was previously stated that Kevin Richards was deceased. However, a contact and friend of his has informed us that Tristan, the man accused of harassing countless people, fabricated this information. We apologize for the confusion in information.

It should stand to no surprise that this article is being made. Today, we are going to address a cyber bully by the name of Tristan Parades. Tristan, according to his own self reflections, is an aspiring talent. He does everything from teach music composition to vocals. However, if you were to check out his Youtube page, “You Can Sing Anything,” you would never guess that. Why? Because for months now, this alleged teacher with a college degree, has tormented, harassed, and even threatened people who actually do teach for a living.

Tristan’s Youtube channel is something I can only define as eerie and borderline stalking. This young “teacher,” decided he did not like how Ken Tamplin was educating people. Okay, that’s fine. However, rather than doing as most adults would do, Tristan decided to smear his name in what can only be regarded as a slanderous campaign. Worst part is, Ken isn’t his first victim…nor was he the last.

In the video pic, posted below, Tristan goes on a rather interesting rant about tongue position and vowels. This young “teacher” decides he is going to, at this point, do some instructing of his own. After a bit of a rant, he decides to discuss how, in the confines of music, tongue positions is important. However, it doesn’t end there. As I reviewed more of his videos, and even his comments, a disturbing image began to unfold.

Another such target of this troll is Kevin Richards. Kevin Richards is very successful voice coach, he is also well known, to my understanding, in the music community. Upon Tristan fabricating his death, he showed just one element toward his disturbing behavior. In the video, “Tribute to Kevin Richards,” a man he has harassed, he is seen simply standing with a trumpet. Shortly after the video begins, he begins to play the song, “TAPS,” if you are unsure as to what this song is, it is the trumpet instrumental that is commonly heard at military funerals.

In a statement, one of his current victims shared with me her fear of this man. She stated that he was clearly unstable. I asked to see records of previous interactions with him, which I received. I will post them below.

I hope you don’t have a criminal background. Because if your behavior continues I will be contacting your local police to be sure they keep watch on you. Your video revealing private videos of me as a teenager as well as revealing my location was incredibly disturbing. I saw you post about how you as a “loving dog owner” shoved your finger inside of your dog. Fucking disgusting.
The erratic behavior stops now. Or I will do everything within my legal power to stop it for you.

Hey I can’t respond to your last message for some reason!
You know. If you were just nicer to me and spoke to me like we were equals instead of threatening to have me arrested and homeless, it would help my ADHD focus a little better. I just don’t respond well to excess stimulation like that, I wind up making silly videos when I get stressed 😛.
Thanks brah! 🙂

Tristan, by his own admission, is on medication for an unknown condition. However, given some of the horrid things stated above, we have a fairly good idea as to why. He accuses his victim of committing sexual acts with her dog while, at the same time, telling her to stop the erratic behavior; the bully believes his victim is the bully? At this point, we can only surmise what’s going on in his head.

PicsArt_03-26-01.05.50

 

According to Tristan, a Robert Lunte filed a false DMCA claim against him. However, I saw the video that he is referring to. In the video, he used portions of Robert’s video as a means to slam and slander him. It is with this in mind, Robert had a legal right to file the DMCA. However, clearly Tristan is not familiar with how DMCA works. In short, you can use it as a parody (The Parody Act,) or as a means to make a commentary. However, you cannot use it to deface the person and their image.

Furthermore, you cannot make profit from Youtube for the types of videos posted above. If you check some of the images, you will notice, on the play bar, a yellow line. This means he is collecting ad revenue. But how can he be collecting ad revenue if he is slandering people? Because, clearly, Youtube is selective on who can and cannot get it. In the past, I have seen videos, and even channels be shutdown, for posting things such as what Tristan posts. Why is it they got shut down and not him? They only shut down a channel, revoke ad revenue, etc. if there are enough reports against it. In short, report him.

Furthermore, what he is doing is illegal. All 50 states have anti-bullying laws; most have anti cyber-bullying laws as well. Although, according to sources, police are aware of the situation, as of the time of this writing, nothing has been done. Meanwhile, his victims must deal with the mental anguish of his constant harassment, threats, and slander. But, because these people are vocal trainers, have credentials, and are successful, it also falls as Defamation of Character as it can hurt their business and income.

A means for a stalker

image

Remember this man? If not, let me explain who he is and why he is so important. First, recall the various articles that have been written about the Dalton case. 20yo El Hadji Mohammad Cisse (El Mo Ci,) was stalking a young 16yo girl. When she denied his advances, he went to the extreme. Thus far, his victim, and her family’s lives are in shambles. Why? Mohammad attempted to abduct his young victim, after nearly eight hours, the family had located her. I won’t go into to many details as they are already floaring about.

image

image

Above, are pictures of the school’s sides. We know, Mohammad tried to abduct her from the side of the building. What is unknown, is which side. Above, are the two possible locations for the abduction. As a result of this abduction, a restraining order, which Missouri threw out, was filed. Upon learning of this filing, Mohammad did what any insane stalker would do; he got a job right across the street from the school.

image
Stalker’s workplace.

Now, I have marked two locations on this image. The first, is a grocery store where the stalker works. The second, the victim’s school. Students often go to this store, where Mohammad currently works, to get food. Now, he is stalking a minor student of this school. With that in mind, one must ask, “are these children really safe shopping there?” My vote is no.

As you can tell, this store is very close to the school. For a psychopath, it is easy to keep watch on his prey, his victim; and yet Missouri, who currently should be protecting this child, has willfully refused to do so. Why? My theory is they are protecting their CPS case, and thus protect their financial gain. To protect the case, they must protect their witness. The worst part is what this statement says. It says that non citizens, who are in our country, have more rights than native born citizens. With this, I question the state, it’s officials, and it’s compentency to protect any child.

The harassment toward his victim has not stopped. Daily, when the victim awaits for her cab, Mohammad pulls up, and harasses her. Below, is a picture of the harassment site.

image

It appears, the girl is not safe anywhere. In fact, it is very likely that her life is in danger; and yet Missouri does nothing aside fabricate stories on the victim. These images bring fourth a lot of questions and concerns. At this point, I do not believe it is if Mohammad will do something, but when. Somehow, somebody has to protect this child. If the state won’t, the family, at the moment can’t, than who? Us. The media, the people, we must protect this child and her family. Not only because of the corruption, but because this could be your child, your family.

UPDATE: We have confirmed that point A, shown above, is the actual abduction point.

NOTE: victim’s name is not mentioned due to current legal circumstances.

CPS: Trained to kill

image

As of the time of this article, not much is known regarding this case. What little information I currently have is tragic. A mother, whose boyfriend had injured her child, played the CPS game and lost. In some aspect, I can already hear people sayimg, “she pulled her trigger.” I disagree.

Losing a child is tough on families; losing four, even more so. A woman, who took the appropriate action, ended up getting shafted. The issue I have in this regard is merely the fact she had reached out to the system for assistance. Rather than helping, as it should have done, the system further victimized this young woman. What could she had done at this point?

She played into their blackmail, extortion, propaganda; she played their twisted idea of a game. Anybody who has dealt with CPS, DFS, etc., already knows that they push parents to their limit. For some parents, as in this case, CPS pushes them beyond their mental capacity. It is, with this in mind, a lot of parents snap.

Though, at this time, the young woman’s name is unknown to me, her loss was simply to much to bear. These stories of parents who commit suicide are always hard for me to ignore. I do not see suicide here. What I see is a Gestapo styled agency, destroying families, and pulling triggers on these parents. That’s right, I am boldy claiming them to be murderers!

You can only push a person for so long before they snap. What CPS does, based on evidence, is push families until they do snap. At that point, thwy claim the parents to be unfit, order them to get mental assessments, and begin repairing what they initially broke. While doing this, they extort and blackmail the families for hundreds, thousands, it does not matter to them. They use the love of the parents as a tool-a weapon against them. Want to know teue evil? CPS has shown it through this and many cases like this.

Missouri vs the tribal nation

As you know, Ferguson was recently in the media due to issues with racism. Have they reformed? No. This story is one of utter horror. It involves a family, who are on the tribal roll, CPS, and the corruption of law enforcement. This story is one that defies all logic, rationality, and law.

It started when Rosemary, mother of a 16 year old located innapropriate photos on a cell phone. A 20 year old Muhammad Cisse of St. Ann, Mo. picked the girl up to take her to a friends house. However, that is not where she ended up. Instead, he drove her to a fitness center across county lines, and then to his home. Once there, he held the young girl against her will, even upon being asked to go home. While imprisoned, her family drastically searched and eventually found her. Muhammad, the abducter, called the police for a “welfare” check. Keep in mind, this man, as shown below, clearly had sexual relations with this minor.

Screenshot_2015-10-17-23-20-3611

Perhaps she needed a welfare check against him.

20151024_010030

As if things could not get any worst, an official report, above, clearly confirms the abuse from Muhammad occured. To this day, against the familys’ wishes, the state has done nothing against these accusations. Instead, they removed the victim from her family, forcing her into isolation. Now, here is where more laws get disregarded.

The girl and her family are enrolled with an Indian tribe. What this means is, legally the state must turn the child over to the tribe. However, the state has willfully violated these laws.

20151024_01183520151024_011905IMG_20151111_003521

Above, is a legal notice from the tribe to the state. Within this letter, they confirm that not only is the family tribal, they notify the state of the various laws being broken; Senators are currently being involved by the tribe. Beyond this, the state has refused to release the child.

This is a case of complexity and corruption in its purest form. This shows just how far the CPS/ DFS is willing to go for a quick buck. There is much more I can comment regarding this, with photographic evidence. However, for now, I hope this basic analysis works.

Single Nation War

It amazes me as to how this nation has fallen from its origional glory. When I was a child, as with most of you, I read the story about Paul Revere, the American Revolution, and the Civil War and was amazed as to what I had learned. You see, the thing that these have in common is they were all about the American people fighting for what they believed to be the right thing to do. Now, when I look at America through the eyes of various articles I read, I am reminded as to how complacent we have become. We went from being a nation ran by the people to a being one ran by major corporations who have deep pockets. The worst part of this is the fact our Government has become nothing more than minions for them; it is something that makes me sick to the stomach.

War on Corruption (my Facebook page) has seen a lot of horrible things since it was first founded. Evidence supporting the stance that we are now living in a police state being among them. One of the goals I had set for myself is awareness. For to long, we the people, have been ignorant of the crimes being commited by our own Government. We ignore them saying, “Well, it’s not like I can do anything about it.” I say you’re full of it (hence why I marked it out.) The problem isn’t that we CAN’T do anything about it, the problem is we WON’T! I have advocated for years this one concept of awareness because I believe that if we are aware of what is going on in D.C. than we can rise against it.

But where do we start? Well, to that question there is no basic answer. You have groups like Anonymous who are a great resource for activist. Me? I started War on Corruption in which I display corrupted Police officers and other Government officials; Hell, you can say I highlight them. You see, the place we start or how we start isn’t what’s important. The thing that matters is where we take it once we start.

I call this post “Single Nation War” because I see a country that is literally in war with itself. The activists are rising against Obama and his corrupted laws and they are rising up against us by spreading fear. For example, it was brought to my attention just yesterday that the Government is now stating that if your child is showing signs of aggression they might be gearing up to be a terrorist. It’s this type of bullshit that I want to stop! If you’re child beats the hell out of another kid, that doesn’t make them a terrorist… In reality, the Government calls everybody “terrorists” because they, in fact, are the terrrorists. As the old saying goes, “the Government hates competition.” Perhaps this is real motivation behind the fear?

Say whaaaat?

Just when I thought the United States Government could not possibly piss me off anymore than what they already have, I learn about Russia. It seems like there is a lot going on in the global scale of politics. In Malasia, we have a missing 777 that seems to have vanished into the abyss, America has a President that seems to be proactive in destroying the Nation from the inside out, and now we have Russia wanting to Nuke us…. you know… blow us to Kingdom come.

The problem I have noticed with our country is we have a “Police the world” mentality. As a result of this, we get involved with affairs that have no bearing on our Nation; in fact, it isn’t even a security issue to us. Now, as most of you may already be aware, Kerry gave Russia a specific time frame to flee Kuwait. Now, I have been saying for years that eventually the United States will get involved in the wrong situation and we will be wiped from the Earth… Just a theory right? Well, Russia has replied to the demand by stating they will turn the United States into a “Nuclear ashland.” Now, doesn’t that just make you feel all bubbly inside? It is, to my best guess, that WWIII will eventually happen. In reality, you cannot just mettle in foreign affairs, piss off other countries, and not expect retaliation for it; hence, why I am an activist. We, activists, tend to have a bad image with those who follow every word the Government tells them. “Terrorists, threat to National Security” being among the names we are called. In reality, I feel that we are the only thing that will save this falling Nation… Assuming we aren’t blown to bits by Russia first.

Leave your comments and thoughts and as always: “Join the Revolution.”

End of an era

This morning I woke up, had a cup of coffee, and sat at my computer to conduct my daily research into the global scale of things. Today, however, was pleasantly different. Normally when I review articles I see the usual “corrupt cop,” “Evil Politician,” “This actor did this,” You know the usual stuff. Today, as I said, was very different. I came across an article regarding the excommunicated pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps.  When it comes to this I have to try… and I mean really try to have some form of sympathy for this family.

Looking into the life of Fred, however, I see a life of hatred and bigotry to an extreme level. This level being to such an extreme that he actually would protest the funerals of children. As of now, I can only presume he’s dying of old age but it’s unknown at this time. As I read the article, one thing did stand out: His family managed to turn this event into one of hatred. As you may know, some of the Phelps family were also excommunicated from the church for not following their twisted beliefs. I suppose hatred will always begot hatred… no matter who it is meant for.

United we failed…

Once in a while, when you look at American history, one just can’t help but be ashamed. For example, “All men are created equal.” Well, this statement was true at that time so long you were not African American, Asian, Mexican, etc. Eventually, however, we grew from that…or have we? Remember the women’s rights protests? You know, that time when women were not allowed to vote? As I said, “all MEN…” In the 1960’s Dr. Martin Luther King gave his most famous speech, “I have a dream.” He gave this speech with the hope that everybody would be equal regardless of Nationality, gender, or other preferences. Looking into our world and Nation today I see very disturbing trends.

For example, since 9/11 I have noticed a very bigoted view toward Muslims in the United States. Okay, I get it, America is pissed off; I was pissed off. Homosexuals (LGBT) are banned under law from being able to marry aside a few select states. You see, the part where I stated that we grew  from that was clearly a lie. The disturbing trend that has hidden itself within our culture is that of bigotry. We attack one group until we find a new group to attack. If you consider the groups that have, and are, attacked one can’t help but wonder, “Who’s next?”

Well, to answer that question: The American People as a whole. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe Government has its place but I don’t deny that something is seriously wrong with the current Administration. Gun Control, Obamacare (Look into that one… seriously,) and countless “hidden” policies that have seemingly slipped through Congress are only small tokens of what is yet to come. Dictatorship? Communism? Marxism? The thing is Americans are still in a position to be able to fight back; it is for this reason I started my Facebook page “War on Corruption.” However, I don’t want to just attack the administration, that just wouldn’t be fair. DHS buying thousands upon thousands of rounds of ammo… why? You tell me. The police force being used as “henchmen” for both Child Protective Services and representatives with hidden agendas… Something is wrong.  

I entitled this post “United we failed.” I did so to make a statement about how the American people have freely given their rights up for “National Security,” Government corruption, and so fourth. To remind everybody of a dream that has yet to be seen, I have included Martin Luther King’s speech, “I have a dream.”

 

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we’ve come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

We cannot turn back.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: “For Whites Only.” We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until “justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”¹

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest — quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; “and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.”2

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride,

From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.

And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.

Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

But not only that:

Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

                Free at last! Free at last!

                Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!3
