Tim Cooka posts a photo on Twitter where he pays tribute to the civil rights movement during Black History Month.
Cook is well aware of the impact of discrimination on society. He grew up in Alabama in the 1960s, a very complicated historical period. His message for the civil rights movement is loud and clear today, on the occasion of Black History Month.
This #BlackHistoryMonth we honor the generations of women and men who had the courage and determination to push for a better, more equal world and we stand alongside those still marching today. pic.twitter.com/n0yEiZ9Zlm
