Practice Hope

September 6th, 2005 · No Comments

Alwin’s latest post is a call to work and a source of hope. He’s relaying field reports and reflections from Dr. Ken Maddox. Dr. Maddox’s closing paragraph includes this beautiful blast:

Please join me and others throughout this country in providing leadership in your community to now rebuild America.

Reading that I was wishing I had a copy of The Chambers Brothers “The Time Has Come” handy with “People Get Ready” to sing along to as well as the title cut “Time Has Come Today.”

Could it be that Katrina and its aftermath will be the start of a long overdue reckoning on the true costs and consequences of race and class as social and ideological constructs in American society?
