We find ourselves in twisted league
Old friends have stumbled and gone astray
New foes arise to block our way.
The country reels; the children cry.
Have we ever paused and wondered why?

However, some disturbing developments and emergent trends raise the alarming possibility that we have already forgotten our guiding principle and lost both our sense of purpose and... (more)
...and particularly young Americans have seen and faced up to such things before. Now I am among the elders. It is time for me to return the favors done for me long years ago. For my sons and my treasured younger colleagues, for the fallen heroes of my youth, for the good and growing community of thinkers, learners, and writers at BrooWaha, I offer this to encourage a renewal of the spirit and a resumption of the practice of a unified and unifying activism through which the Waves of Freedom will wash away the bitterness, bigotry, and belligerence now imperiling the domestic...

All manner of false charges were hurled to deny them legitimacy and deprive them of the opportunity to compete fairly for office. For almost 100 years after this benighted period, black citizens were subjected to endless schemes and brutal intimidation to deny them their Constitutional right to vote.
