I flew to Iowa to speak at Grinnell College on MLK Day. The weather was several degrees below freezing but the reception was warm.
I was scheduled to speak Monday at 4:15 pm. At 4 o'clock, people from the community began streaming into the chapel-like auditorium: mostly white women, their eyes shining with anticipation.
On each chair, Shea Howell, also a contributor to the Michigan Citizen, had placed two Boggs Center brochures: "Re-Imagining Revolution" and "Self-Evident Truths." Detroit community activist Doc Holbrook had set up a literature table. (We sold out copies of "The Next American Revolution").
