   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.

Please let us know if you’ve read it!  🙂

    1. Thank you very much, Ned, for bearing with me: once I finish this round of posts, at 67, that will be it for reposting these lesson plans, although I will need to update one once in a while to keep them circulating on the web, I guess.
