You certainly should be proud of your parents. People have a tendency to forget the contributions of White America in the Civil Rights Movement; and the fact that many gave their lives for the cause.

As JDubsMom has mentioned, it would not have been a success without the help of white people. Nor would the Underground Railroad.

I'm sorry for your loss.
