>On September 29, approximately 100 African-American farmers met with two deputized white men and a black trusteeat a church met at a church near Elaine to discuss how to obtain fairer settlements.
>Union advocates brought armed guards to protect the meeting. Shots were exchanged. One of the white men, Railroad Policeman W.D. Adkins was killed, and the other white man wounded

Fuck unions. All they are is a crypto commie outfit. If you’re in a union, kill yourself, because it just means you can’t hold a real job because you’re incompetent

>Bryan A. Stevenson is an American lawyer, social justice activist, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative

https://www.ted.com/talks/bryan_stevenson_we_need_to_talk_about_an_injustice

>In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.

>Stevenson has acquired six acres of former public housing land in Montgomery for the development of a new project, the Memorial for Peace and Justice, to commemorate the nearly 4,000 lynchings that took place in the South from 1877 to 1950.

>The Memorial to Peace and Justice, informally known as the National Lynching Memorial, is a national memorial planned to commemorate the victims of lynching in America, and is expected to open in 2018.

>Architecture is more than a clever arrangement of bricks. In this eloquent talk, Michael Murphy shows how he and his team look far beyond the blueprint when they're designing. Considering factors from airflow to light, theirs is a holistic approach that produces community as well as (beautiful) buildings. He takes us on a tour of projects in countries such as Rwanda and Haiti, and reveals a moving, ambitious plan for The Memorial to Peace and Justice, which he hopes will heal hearts in the American South.
