One person was there from Shaker Heights, Ohio! I was at that RALLY in Cleveland. Teach, Mel! Your life has great meaning and profundity! Empire is stoopped by refusing to be infused with it! Regurgitate Empire! The Empire within.

Many people, like me, who worked on "marriage equality" were NOT thinking of it as the goal or particularly desirable any more than bus - riding was the goal of the bus boycott - it was misunderstood.

As a member of TFAM, founded by Bishop Yvette Flunder can be a great place to do this work if we also push back against the hegemony of chrisitianity

Thank you for this discussion. I appreciate it very much. My question/request is if there are any plans to make these books into audiobooks? I think having an audiobook option will help reach more people.

I suspect that Black hope is different than white hope; by that, I mean, Black hope is strongest when it includes an African-derived philosophy of life

TFAM website is not providing information. What is it?

So good to hear Mel again. Thank you! I participated in a Soulforce action on the Southern Baptists in STL where I live, and it was a powerful weekend. I appreciate the intersectional organizing that Rev. Flunder and Rev. Barber are doing and love what Rev. Barber said about "rejected praise" when he consecrated as a bishop. Find that at: https://kairoscenter.org/congratulations-bishop-william-barber/
