It is crucial that we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us today, and to come and work together, for all of us, right?
I believe that attention to shared histories, as in DC, may provide part of an answer. I started a note about that, a few years ago, in my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call:
” …agencies, might place access to some of their resources into the timebank. This might be the use of a minibus or sports hall, or particular skills that they have such as graphic design or legal advice. Organisations in the timebank can then share, trade and exchange resources based on the hour for an hour principle.
A false distinction?
In reality however, timebanks are most sustainble when these artificial boundaries are withdrawn, and the three models are brought together. In that way, people, organisations and public services can be brought together in time banking marketplaces where skills, support and physical assets can be exchanged in an equitable manner.”
Thus Dr. Edgar Cahn, from being a living example of Black-Jewish cooperation, to fighting injustice for all people, created a new economic institution which values the time and contributions of all.
He still insists that he never aligned himself with any community, but worked with any community that cared about finding synergy to move together toward a common goal, a world with “no more throw away people.” …
So, it turns out that I might have needed to explain a bit more about something on this page, but I’m not sure what.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
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.
