(Day 1Day 5)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

Please leave a review, if you can, on the GoodReads page.

  1. Public Libraries have been called the People’s University by more than one person. I have read numerous stories by immigrants on how the library helped them learn English and gave people a free place to go, read books for free, and use the computer. During the COVID crisis, though many public libraries were not open to the public, their free WIFI provided internet connectivity for people who did not have it at home. People would sit in their parking lots using computers, tablets, and even phones to do school work or even paid work. Back in the 1980s, “latch-key” children used to go to the library when they were not supposed to home alone. Even in the 2000s, many children head to the public library once school is finished for the day. Everything is not on the Internet and it is not free, for those people who say that we no longer need libraries. In the past decade, the library as a place has become almost as important as the contents. People need low-cost/free places to meet for exercise, club or other meetings, to hear speakers or musicians Many libraries also offer tutoring or ESL classes. I have been a library groupie my whole life and was fortunate enough to spend over 50 years working or volunteering in various libraries (starting in high school).
    Without libraries we are less human and more profoundly alone
