Thoughtful Thursdays, Stayed on Freedom with the Call of Freedom, and Libraries as Safe Spaces

Who remembers the role that public libraries played in bringing neighbors together?

So, how do we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us now, and to come and work together, for all of us?

I believe that attention to shared histories of times when a certain library in DC helped, may provide part of an answer.  I started a note about that, a few years ago, in my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call:

” …Carnegie Public Library. Some working class neighborhoods, such as the SW neighborhood where Al Jolson learned the speaking style he would later play on
stage, allowed limited mixing. The annual Easter Monday Egg Rolling contest was, however, the only officially non-segregated social event in the city for many years. Despite this, or because of it, Washington, DC was eventually
declared the most segregated city in the Union. That artificial separation of groups and classes of people, with its attendant humiliation and ambiguity for both Negroes and Jews, was shown for the disruptive force it was meant to be, and broken down in two places: the lone institution of learning where all could meet and see past their differences, and the largest market in the city, where all could meet and see their common needs for food, and other goods, as human beings.

At the turn of the century, both communities developed similar ways of evading White discrimination. Both communities built their own institutions, and both sometimes had assimilation attempts. The Jewish community took refuge in its own institutions, from the synagogues to the YMHA near 11th and
Pennsylvania Ave, NW.

Comparable institutions in the African-American
community included churches and the 12th Street YMCA, also known as the Anthony Bowen YMCA, after a prominent free man of color who was a…

So, it turns out that I might have needed to explain a bit more about the levels of segregation in the city, on this page.  Some fresh reviews would help me decide that specific.

Day 24 of High School in Five Months, voting, and libraries

Citizenship responsibilities, like voting, require a combination of both knowledge of the candidates, and of the tools, like Ranked Choice Voting, that give us ways to make our voices heard.  Libraries put more tools into the hands of citizens, empowering better decision-making.  Those tools, like RCV and critical thinking, are some of the tools that any democracy movement needs:

With a classmate, work together for 7 minutes to take a crack at:

The Djinni’s Offer:

“After opening an ancient bottle you find on the beach, a Djinni
appears. In payment for his freedom, he gives you a choice of either
50,000 gold coins or one magical gold coin. The magic coin will turn
into two gold coins on the first day. The two coins will turn into four
coins total at the end of two days. By the end or the third day there will
be eight gold coins total. The Djinni explains that the magic coins will
continue this pattern of doubling each day for one moon cycle, 28
days. Which prize do you choose?
When you have made your choice, answer these questions:
 The number of coins on the third day will be 2×2×2. Can you write
another expression using exponents for the number of coins there will be on the third day?
 Write an expression for the number of coins there will be on the
28th day. Is this more or less than a million coins?”
(from: https://www.illustrativemathematics.org/content-standards/tasks/532)
.

(Day 16Day 18)

Action Items in support of literacy (and Gold!) that you can take right now:

1.) Download some public domain version of a classic story about djinn,

2.) Bet a week’s worth of dish-washing with some friends that you’ll have more gold after 30 days than they could ask for in one lump sum from the tricky Djinni!

3.) Share how the bet went: who’s washing dishes?

4.) Write a novel that references a classic book, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.

Thoughtful Thursdays, Stayed on Freedom with the Call of Freedom, and Public Health Care

Libraries are even part of the community health care network, in many neighborhoods.  

So, how do we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us, and to give more money for Public Health Care?

I believe that attention to shared and connected community institutions, like Public Health Clinics, may provide part of an answer.  I started a note about that, a few years ago, on page ten of my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call:

“… Georgetown businessman Moses Zachariah Booth in 1865, and the Nash and
Mayo families from Virginia at the turn of the 20th century, so Jewish
businessmen and families trickled into the city before and, poured in during the
Civil War, as with Cantor Lansburgh from Baltimore in 1860, and the Small
family at the turn of the 20th century. Thus there are multiple parallels in the
ways that the Jewish and Black communities, both enslaved as well as free
people of color, had to cope with life in a country where neither was recognized
as fully equal by the White majority.
By the time the first Hebrew Congregation in Washington City is
organizing in 1852, thus present at least as early as 1850, slave coffles are still
passing at night down 7 th Street. The groans of slaves from the nearby DC City
Jail, long used as a federally subsidized slave pen, still echo from the corner of
4 th and G, St., NW, where the first Jewish residents might have passed going
about their day. Those sounds may have been particularly poignant in 1851, as
the Fugitive Slave Act came in to effect. The Act stopped the slave coffles, but
in exchange, required the active participation of all free citizens in the
apprehension and return of runaway slaves. As they listened to the Torah being
read in private homes, in store fronts along 7 th street, or even in SouthWest, near
the Wharf, the destination of those enchained human beings, did they recall
those sounds of suffering? What conflicts might this have raised in the minds of…

Thoughtful Thursdays, Stayed on Freedom with the Call of Freedom, and Public Libraries?

Libraries are part of the community gathering and information sharing system for all Americans that must not be forgotten, nor underfunded. 

So, how do we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us, and to give more money for local branches of Public Libraries?

I believe that attention to connecting community institutions, like Public Libraries, may provide part of an answer.  I started a note about that, a few years ago, on page nine of my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call:

Chapter 1: Shared Oppression, Shared Cultures, Shared
Resistance, Shared History Of Oppression:

“You accepted 400 years of oppression, I have just accepted three thousand years of
oppression!”

-African-American Dr. Jean Cahn, upon converting to Judaism, by permission, E. Cahn

   The rabbis say that it took one man plunging into the Sea and wading in
up to his neck before the waters parted and the Children of Israel were finally
able to be free. As Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of the land of Egypt, up
and out of bondage, so the Negro slaves looked to their faith, even as the
spiritual waters of oppression seemed to rise up to the necks of people of color,
both free and enslaved.

People of color formed communities in spite of the
oppressive atmosphere, overcoming great prejudice to do so, as mistrusted and
often denigrated Jewish citizens also had to do. From Benjamin Banneker in
1791, to Isaac Polock in 1795, the first non-White residents of the city faced
unique challenges, having to prove themselves to their White contemporaries.
In 1850, abolitionists and free people of color advocated for the rights of slaves,
while Captain Jonas P. Levy and the Sons of Israel fraternal members had to
advocate for the rights of Jews, overlooked in our very own treaties.
Just as free individuals and families of color formed connections in the Capital, as with…

Day 65/67 of GED in Five Months, Parabolas, and Public Libraries

Parabolas describe falling, thrown, (or ?) objects: symmetry is … symmetrical.

–Clearly, a library at each campus of each Adult /Continuing Education site would be helpful, as well as quiet study cubicles, for those with no place to study at home.

Continuing to learn, and helping others continue to learn, helps our society, so I am posting these lesson plans in the hope of helping others to help themselves to learn, whether one has yet to finish High School, or merely wants a refresher.

But, the fun parabola question is: will this space tour transportation (rocket) travel in the form of a parabola on the way to and from the Space Station?  Babylon 5, we’re almost there! 

Axiom Space said three private individuals and a former NASA astronaut will fly aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule for an eight-day stay on the station.

 

…”

 Week 18/18
Day 65, week 18
Grammar: Essay Writing -Continue working on your Conclusion paragraph
Math: parabolas and the axis of symmetry
Science: reading , and a little algebra to go with it…
Please see the Lesson plan for Day 65’s Exit Tickets
 

Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:

1.) Search for two different sites about parabolas

2.) Please tell us where the information for today’s reading comes from, how you know that the sources are reliable, and who funded them,

3.)  Feel free to answer the exit ticket questions in the comments, or pose any other questions you may have about the lesson, if you wish.
