Apollo 11 Flight Journal (The Challenge Before Us)

On the eve of Apollo 11’s launch in July 1969, Reverend Ralph Abernathy, head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), led a demonstration outside the Kennedy Space Center. Still reeling from the assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Abernathy led this march of the poor to draw attention to economic and racial inequalities. The Apollo 11 mission has been hailed as humanity’s greatest technological achievement, and after the upheaval of the 1960s, when America just commemorated the mission’s 50th anniversary, the Apollo program, driven by the space race against the Soviet Union, cost $25.4 billion, the equivalent of $180 billion today. Only the Vietnam War hit taxpayers harder. The black press wondered how the price could be justified while millions of African-Americans were still plunged into poverty. The recent protests have their roots in the same civil rights movement, a decades-long history of peaceful demonstrations interspersed with waves of frustration.
