OUR VISIT TO ATLANTA
By Grace Lee Boggs
Buy accupril without prescription, April 7-14, 2012
Wednesday evening we spent three hours in a large auditorium in the Atlanta University Center Historic District with a panel of Vincent Harding’s Morehouse College students
and about a hundred other people from the community.
Invincible performed two lively raps while scenes of
Detroit’s devastation were flashed on a large screen in the background.
I talked about the many Solutionaries creating community-based education and New Work & Culture who are coming to the Boggs Center.
The ensuing discussion was desultory and struck me as half-hearted.
The next morning a smaller group met in the Episcopal Center and discussed pressures on black men to prove or negotiate their masculinity. The discussion was much livelier.
It became especially interesting to me when Aljosie Knight, accupril cheap, Buy accupril internet, Vincent Harding ‘s administrative assistant, described the “sweetness” of older black men, cheap accupril online, Sale accupril, who had been raised in the Jim Crow South. Jimmy Boggs and many of his friends, find accupril online, Find discount accupril, male and female, had that .”sweetness.” That is why we were married for 40 years and why I decided to make Detroit my home.
Her remark reminded me that younger black males, find accupril without prescription, Approved accupril pharmacy, growing up in the middle and late 20th and early 21st centuries, have had few opportunities to be of use or for doing the real work which has always been so integral to being human.
Jimmy used to say “Men don't need to show our manhood, accupril approved. Cost accupril, We need to show our humanity.”
Detroit and Atlanta strike me as very different culturally and politically, even though they are both majority African American cities.
Detroit’s devastation challenges us to keep imagining and creating alternatives, accupril tablet. Cheapest generic accupril, The imagination of Atlanta residents remains dormant because its fancy hotels and condos, soaring skyscrapers, accupril canada, Buy accupril lowest price, even its freeways named for civil rights leaders, create the illusion that the American Dream is still alive.
