Dear Reader: Many bloggers review these episodes, recounting the plot and character arc follow-through in each episode. I do not. I do refer to others who leave such traditional reviews, usually, at the end of each ‘part of this letter from Minbar,’ but I do not feel the need to summarize what has already been done. Rather, I try to take the main theme from each episode, and run them through a filter of a Minbari Ranger that I have created, who originally belonged to the Religious Caste. That character is Ranger Mayann. Her “letter from Minbar” is the initial part of each post on these films and episodes.
I hope that you find meaning, and that you will share your thoughts on these thoughts.
Shira, for Ranger M.

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.
