salute: February 7th… Walter White

Despite his blonde hair, blue eyes and last name, Walter White whose ancestry proved to only be a fraction black, decided to live his life as a black man (one drop rule!). The leader of the NAACP for almost a quarter of a century and a civil rights activist, Walter Francis White had his hand in every cause for the advancement of blacks in America.  He lead the way in an anti lynching law that after many years of fighting finally proved to be successful. Let us salute Mr. White!

“I walk in the footsteps of giants.”
