This image is of Peggy (R), then a 19 year-old SNCC member, next to future civil rights icon, Dr. Dorothy Cotton (L), after a 1962 church burning in Georgiathe state that Peggy's great-great grandparents, William & Ellen Craft, famously escaped from slavery nearly 115 years earlier...

WEEKLY 

WORD

The disintegration and grifting continues...things will not improve until we vote him and his enablers in the Senate, the House and in state elected offices OUT...

CRASHING AND CASHING—IN...

by Peggy Trotter Dammond Preacely

As the world turns

It shows a reality show

that is far worse than we could ever expect

Or imagine.

As the world crashes

He is cashing in

On our sympathy

With lies

So bold now

That we are stunned

Frozen against a hermetic glass window

That offers us only a brief transient protection.

I for one, want to go down in history

In protest and in prayer.

I guess we can finally see

There is

NO there, there

NO conscience

NO care

Only some abandoned fetid feathers from his cap

floating in air

That is so stale and rank

That we gasp in disbelief

Hey, Man

WE. CAN’T. BREATHE.

We need the oxygen of truth

To fumigate The  People’s House.
