In this Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015, photo, Ruby Sales, founder and director of The Spirit House Project, an Atlanta-based nonprofit dealing with discrimination, sits for a photo in Atlanta. Fifty years after Jonathan Daniels was shot dead by an ardent segregationist in Alabama, the people who stood with him then lament today’s killings of blacks by police and the racially motivated slaying of nine black worshipers as stark reminders of the country’s persistent racial divide. “Race relations today in the United States are an extension of that time period,” Sales said.
