Today’s reading continues with atomic structure, but you can follow links to earlier pages on atoms, or go ahead with molecules, depending on what you’ve already covered in your science studies:

(Day 1Day 5)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at:…)
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.
