EJ Wilder, Young Republican National Federation's Education Committee Chairman, and the YRNF Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month, the annual celebration of the role which African Americans have played and will continue to play in the history of the United States, was originally ‘Negro History Week’ which was celebrated during the second week in February which contained the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas. Seeing the need to expand the history beyond just a week, in 1976, President Gerald Ford dedicated the entire month of February to this celebration honoring the history which is our American history.

Our country has progressed a great deal since 1976, even more since 1776, yet we know we still have mountains to climb in healing the relations which have been soured since well before the end of segregation in 1964. This is not to say we haven't achieved a lot in regards to the lives and rights of African American. It is important during this month we remember how far we have come and how far we can go, for all Americans, when we work together. 

The successes of African Americans run deep within the Republican Party. Many great African American Senators, Representatives, and other leaders have seen great success within the party. Senator Tim Scott, Representatives Will Hurd and Mia Love, several former cabinet level appointees, as well as a host of other former members of congress, and RNC leadership and staff members are men and women of color who have led as Republicans. And perhaps more importantly, thousands of up and coming African American leaders, Party members and leaders throughout our American communities.

As we progress through this century, history and the country will increasingly turn to the millennial generation to lead the way. Our generation will be tasked with continuing the momentum in bettering our nation regarding our education system, healthcare, the economy, criminal justice reform, and race relations. I am confident my generation can do just this. We must find a 
Better Way to help unite America
 and enable Americans.

We must make sure children in all communities have the opportunity to succeed at every stage of their lives, from early childhood through college. We must ensure individuals have the control and increased choices to pick the healthcare plans that meets each person's needs, and not a plan which is mandated. One-size-fits-all has never been the American way.

We need a workplace in which it is easy for the American worker and student to excel. We need to look at who we incarcerate, why we incarcerate them, and what we can do about breaking the cycle of life-long incarceration. We need to foster an overall American environment where every citizen can live the life they choose without the intervention of government be that the dinner table, boardroom, or place of worship.

And we shall endeavor to honor the achievements of African American not only during this February, but all months, because Black History is American History and our futures are bound together

Emmanuel “E.J.” Wilder is National Committeeman for the North Carolina Young Republicans and Chairman of the YRNF Education Committee.

Martin Luther King

How MLK's Faith Influenced His Public Life
 
 
Across the country today, speakers will honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. They will likely quote the resounding “I Have a Dream” speech and the stirring “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”

But what made it possible for King to accomplish so much? Let’s go deeper into the origins of his belief that men and women of all races are born to the same rights and freedoms.
King explained that “just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the Greco Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own home town.”

King’s faith supported everything he did, and his vision for America arose directly from his Christian ideals. “If we are wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong,” he declared. “If we are wrong, God Almighty is wrong.”

Christianity teaches that people must love one another, and even before he began his crusade for civil rights, King frequently preached that people must love their enemies and forgive those who attempt to harm them. The marches, rallies, and boycotts he organized all featured non-violence, because they were born in Christian love and hope.

King called on Americans “to look deep down within every man and see within him something of Godliness.” His faith in God gave him faith in his fellow Americans. They proved worthy. Within a generation, “the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners” were finally treated as equals under the law.

While King talked openly about his faith, these days there’s pressure to scrub religion from the public square. Activists seem to misunderstand the First Amendment. They act as if it provides freedom (for them) from religion, instead of freedom (for everyone) of religion. Just last week, for example, a group in Oklahoma filed a lawsuit alleging that most of the Ten Commandments actually violate state and federal laws.

Unfortunately, this extends to King’s legacy as well. There are 16 quotations at his D.C. memorial. Several originate in sermons and one quotes a Bible verse, yet there’s no mention of God or faith.

So on his holiday, let his words be a fitting reminder of the intersection between faith and political action. “All men, created alike in the image of God, are inseparably bound together,” King wrote in 1956. “This is at the very heart of the Christian gospel.” It is the heart of the American creed as well.
