“Cambridge Friends” Now Live on About Place Journal

Feb 13, 2014 | Writing | 0 comments

It’s here! About Place Journal, Volume II, Issue IV, A Civil Rights Retrospective, and with it my story, “Cambridge Friends.” I am so psyched to be part of this awesome collection.

In the words of the introduction, “this issue contains challenging, provocative, compelling, and prophetic contributions in essays, poetry, lyrics, song, short fiction, photography, art, and video that reflect on a particular or general aspect of the ongoing struggle for civil rights. How far have we come as a country, and how have we regressed?”

I look forward to exploring the rich array of voices assembled in this volume, and as Michael McDermott, Managing Editor, writes, “This issue will help to inspire and direct activities to forward the struggle for social justice…working for a better future by learning and honoring our past.”

A special thanks to Editor Richard Cambridge, whose vision for this issue has been profound. To borrow a phrase he borrowed from Martin Luther King, who adapted it from a sermon given by Theodore Parker in 1853, “The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Who would have thought that a suburban white chick could have anything of value to add to a conversation as critical as one about civil rights? The struggle for justice, however, belongs to us all. Click here to read “Cambridge Friends.” Peace.
