Rev. Barber: We are witnessing the birth pangs of a Third Reconstruction
I have been, well, just reading, unable to find stability under foot..while reading various sites, I came across Rev. Barbers words at Think Progress..a history lesson if you will, insight, and truth, hard to come by these days...
I do not know who to trust - so I guess I will just have to trust my conscience...this is a good read...moving forward
From Rev. Barber
We need a moral movement to revive the heart of American democracy and build a Third Reconstruction for our time. This work is not easy, and it will not be completed quickly. But we know what is required to move forward together.
Ive traveled to 22 states this year to train local leadership in moral fusion organizing and conduct Moral Revival services. This network of state-based moral coalitions will host a National Watch Night Service on December 31st, with the event in Washington, D.C., livestreamed to local gatherings across the nation.
As formerly enslaved people were invited to enlist in a struggle for freedom on January 1st, 1863, we will invite all people of conscience to enlist in a Moral Revival Poor Peoples Campaign throughout 2017 and 2018.
(I am not religious, but I do know right from wrong....what a good man Rev. Barber)
He and Sister Simone are two of my favorites. I am religious, but I am the "red letter" kind.
when the unreconstructed bigots are finally put in their place in the scrap heap of history, never to "rise" again!
The tried and true coalition of African-Americans and moderate/liberal Whites is needed now more than it ever was in the Civil Rights era.
