Using public transportation in some cities can sometimes feel like solving a Rubik’s Cube: easy one day, not so easy the next, oftentimes. But the ability to use mass transit, and the availability and safety of buses, sidewalks, even frequently overlooked details like paths to the sidewalk, and sidewalk cuts, for those in walkers or wheelchairs, requires the same kind of community thinking that any democracy movement must practice. Can cubic numbers and puzzles also teach us about finding the roots of transportation problems for others, which we ourselves may not have to worry about, but others do (like the lack of a cut or path that was no problem for me, during the day time, but presents a constant hazard for less mobile people at any time of day or night, at a certain Continuing Education campus…)?

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