Isabel Wilkerson with NBA star Bill Russell | Leaving the Jim Crow South | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

America needs to hear these stories.

 

Check the part with Bill Russell about half way through.

 

It's about segregation vs integration and migration vs immigration;  about moving out of the Jim Crow South; and about the move from no education to Harvard education.

I Shall Not Be Conformed -Starlette McNeill

I Shall Not Be Conformed -Starlette McNeill | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"It’s not about race; that’s the scapegoat. This is about how we treat one another and there’s no one to blame but us.

 

We draw the lines and then cross them.

 

We provide the rations of privilege and train our children for combat.

 

We strategize and plan and attack each other. Crying, “peace, peace” when that’s not what we really want.

 

We want war because we want sides– our side of the story to be prominent, our piece of the pie to be largest."

 

-Starlette McNeill
