One thought on “A Black Pietà + Targeted Kids

  1. Interesting stuff, John. thanks. I grew up in an all-white neighborhood in the suburbs of Detroit; although we had some minorities, none were black. It was a haevily Catholic neighborhood, with a mix of everything else (the Catholic school was only a few blocks away…many of my neighborhood friends attended). We had a “children’s home”–what, in the time, we’d call an orphanage–about 1/2 mile from the house. One kid, Rod Colts, was black and he went to my elementary school and I had a group project with him and 2 others when I was in 6th grade. My connection to Detroit’s black community was through music–what we called “soul music”–thanks to Berry Gordy and Motown (it’s a great place to visit, BTW, if you ever get to Detroit). I’ve lived in the DC area for 45 years, so my connections and interrelationships with all kinds of people has vastly improved, especially with the business travel I’ve had (endured?). I don’t know why I’m rambling here; not sure I have a point other than thanks for posting stuff that both interesting and relevant. Stay safe, be well.
