The Gentle Messenger Illuminates The Future

History is the gentle messenger that answers the questions “How did we get here?” and “What comes next?” All of us were born with a story, and part of our journey towards the common good is exposing that birth story to the illuminating quality of maturation. In our selections for this week’s reader, activists, economists, poets, and environmentalists interrogate the stories we have been told about land use, the Black woman’s “place”, American history, and messages surrounding American government and economy, and exposes them to the light.
