    To My Dearest Nika-san, It’s March 27, 1965, and as I walk through the muddy fields of Hayneville, Alabama, I stop to look at the sky and wonder what we blacks have been through. The day before we left for the march with Dr. King (Martin Luther King Jr.), I have done a lot of preparations and packed a very small amount of items needed before I left for the march.

Many of us have been walking for quite awhile, and so we plan to be walking to Montgomery for about 5 days. The other day when we started to march downtown near the white stores, I felt many people staring at me, specifically whites, but I still kept my head up high. Dr. King plans for all of us to meet up at the white people’s courthouse in Montgomery to fight for our rights. Once we got there, we stood there and stood on our knees. When old man Banks couldn’t bend, one of the majors beat him down and Dr. King just stood there doing nothing. I was afraid that this would happen and his family were trying to keep down their genes but Banks’ eldest son shouted back at the major where Mrs. Banks had the decision to hit the white man. That's where we got…

    Macomb, Alabama. It appears to be a dreary old town, but get to know it and its inhabitants and you will find that you can learn many valuable things from events and the unique citizens. These themes act as life lessons to Jem and Scout Finch as they mature. As we watch them grow older throughout the novel these themes have a large impact on the people they become.

    B. Chef Curry’s Covenant Not to Compete Is Likely Unenforceable Because It Does Not Meet All Four Elements of Enforceability. If chefs are considered professionals, Alabama courts will only enforce a noncompetition agreement when an employer has a protectable interest, the restriction is reasonably related to that interest, the restriction is reasonable in time and place, and the restriction imposes no undue hardship upon the employee.

    You’ll notice that in the second part of the first verse, Lynyrd Skynyrd takes a direct shot at the Canadian musician – “Well I heard mister Young sing about her [Alabama]. Well, I heard ole Neil put her [Alabama] down. Well, I hope Neil Young will remember, a Southern man don't need him around anyhow”. Those who identify as white southerners have been largely labeled as uneducated, racist, closed-minded, and stricken with poverty. Much of this is attributed to the generalization of…
