    Which America Is It?

    Hanging on the wall in kitchen of Civil Rights Veteran, Joanne Blackmon Bland's home is a calendar of President Obama. “Yeah, I like looking at that,” Joanne says in her weary but full voice.

I finished watching a movie with my wife when I checked my voicemail. It was my mother and it was… Read More
