I felt that the true hero of the Watergate scandal was Frank Willis, he was the one who discovered the wire tapping. He worked as a janitor and was cleaning and called and reported the wire tapping. He received very little recognition. He returned to his hometown of Augusta, Ga. Willis lived in hardship until his death. There should still be some kind of honor for Frank Willis in the White House for this brave African American. Thanks, for your attention. Rosa Bogar

I saw "The Butler" and was drained with emotions. But what came to mind was the work that I just celebrated to honor pioneers of Civil Rights Remembrance Day. It made me realized that many of those pioneers would not have been recognized if not for this work of sixteen years. This also brings to mind of trying to reach out to Oprah Winfrey and others to take a look at Dr. Leedell W. Neyland's book "Unquenchable Black Fires" This true history of a fire that took the lives of 209 Blacks in Natchez, Mississippi in 1940. Dr. Neland may very well be the last survivor of this tragedy. He is in pursuit of seeing a movie or documentary of this historic fire. Segregation played an integral role in this fire! I have sent out a pea to noted producers such as Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Rev. T.D.Jakes and most recently Lee Daniels. I hope this will become a reality! D. Neyland is a noted author, educator and speaker. Thanks s very much. Rosa Bogar
