FIGHT THE RIGHT!

==================

The first National Day of Mourning was held in 1970. The Commonwealth of

Massachusetts invited Wampanoag leader Frank James to deliver a speech.

When the text of Mr. James' speech, a powerful statement of anger at the

history of oppression of the Native people of America, became known before

the event, the Commonwealth "disinvited" him. That silencing of a strong

and honest Native voice led to the convening of the National Day of

Mourning.
