Not in Our Town joined the festivities at the block party organized by the department of Health and Human Services on Clay Street. Some took our “fortune cookie” style handouts, quotes from everyone from Mahatma Gandhi to Margaret Mead to Cornel West. Others drew on or signed our poster (left). We distributed information about Continuing Conversations (on first Mondays at the library) and our focus on Michelle Alexander’s book “The New Jim Crow.” At left: Marietta Taylor, Wilma Solomon, Larry Spruill. Above right, from left, Marietta Taylor, Rosemary Cilenti, and Herman Parish.
