Day 11/67 of High School in Five Months, Perspectives, and libraries

Books, film, and other forms of media, like comic books, aka graphic novels, and music can all help us see the world from a new perspective.   Books and other works that are in the public domain are made accessible by volunteer libraries, like the one compiled by LibriVox, or Project Gutenberg.   Libraries of various kinds are one of the key parts of our democracy, and therefore, of Phase I of the Four Freedoms movement :

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free: 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.
