Civil Rights – Then & Now

For a reminder of how we got to the Black Lives Matter movement and a resurgence of caste systems in America, read We Are All Good People Here by Susan Rebecca White. Two college friends find divergent paths to address the inequities they become aware of in the persons of black housekeepers. Their worlds draw further apart when Eve, the privileged daughter of an old Atlanta family becomes radicalized protesting the Viet Nam war while the pragmatic Danielle, an outsider raised by a Jewish father and Methodist mother confronts the limitations of being a civil rights lawyer, and a woman, in the South.
