By that time there had been many demonstrations, and Martin Luther King was a recognizable figure. It was a confusing time because there were a lot of mixed motivations for what people were doing. As a fairly ignorant kid, living by that time in a very typical suburban setting, it was the music that called attention to the extent of the injustices of racism, and rallied a sense of unity with those who were doing something about it. Blowing in the Wind was sort of an anthem, whether it was sung by Dylan or Peter Paul and Mary. There was a very strong sense of a division between what was just and unjust, and the &ldquo;generation gap&rdquo; talked about so much at the time was marked by being clear about rejecting racism. I got dragged along by some of my friends to demonstrations. The emotional importance of singing We Shall Overcome while standing with those who shared deeply this commitment meant a lot. ( I was only in a situation where I felt threatened once or twice. My strategy was to get behind the nuns).</p> <p>One of the musical figures that might not be so well known as Joan Baez or Pete Seeger was Phil Ochs. I think his best stuff was written in speaking out against the war. One good example would be Draft Dodger Rag. He wrote some stuff that was pretty bitter, Here&rsquo;s to the State of Mississippi., and In the Heat of the Summer. And he wrote some stuff that is quite wistful, for example, Flower Lady. Music then had the power to trouble one&rsquo;s conscience, as in Is There Anybody Here? The song that seems the one most people remember him by is There But for Fortune. I recommend them all to you. I still have them on my old reel to reel set up, but you can get at the performances now in ways easier and more familiar to you than that. <br /> <br /> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/_zY_cM0_6vA" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" width="420"></iframe> <br /> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/AW6NVcqcRVE" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" width="420"></iframe> </p> </div> <div class="linksteaser"><div class="links"><ul class="links inline"><li class="comment_forbidden first"></li> <li class="node_read_more"><a href="/content/words-across-worlds-submission-prof-james-mahoney" title="Read the rest of Words Across Worlds submission by Prof. James Mahoney.">Read more</a></li> <li class="tweet_Twitter last"><a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=+Words+Across+Worlds+submission+by+Prof.+James+Mahoney%23Wor%E2%80%A6http%3A/%2Flucubrations.org/content/words-across-worlds-submission-prof-james-mahoney" class="tweet" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="/modules/tweet/twitter.png" alt="Post to Twitter" title="Post to Twitter" width="16" height="16" /></a></li> </ul></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="views-row views-row-2 views-row-even"> <div class="node"> <h2 class="nodeTitle"><a href="/content/words-across-worlds-submission-karina-de-brum">Words Across Worlds submission by Karina de Brum</a> </h2> <div class="content"> <p>&nbsp;<span style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; text-align: center; ">Karina de Brum</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); ">this isn't a big revealing moment but I grew up in a hugely diverse place. as a little kid Shel Silverstein was one of my heroes, your call reminded me of this.</span><br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: normal; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); " /> <br style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: normal; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); " /> <span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); ">&quot;My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.

I was in the 8<sup>th</sup><span class="Apple-converted-space">&nbsp;</span>grade in Braintree, MA. A federal judge, Arthur Garrity, Jr, ordered that students from Boston&rsquo;s schools would be bused to other communities in an effort to achieve racial integration. I remember black students coming to our school. I remember watching news footage of the riots and protests. I was among a large group of students who participated in a walk-out in support of the black students being able to go to school in their own neighborhoods. We all got suspended. At the time my mother worked third shift at the First National Bank of Boston in Dorchester. As she was leaving work in the morning there would be National Guardsmen lined up on the street to protect the students getting on and off of the buses.</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);

Words man, words say things, they open up a world of indefinite reality set upon vinyl to a record player of life. A side, B side, each has its qualities and each has its way of being. Can the tortoise shell glasses redeem the sacrificial lamb from its wrongs upon the hill of judgment? Can a semi-religious statement be made to seem like one come from the mouth of a non-believer? Mark off the prices of idiosyncratic Black Friday stores, raid them for their wares, for their solutions to ancient living. Turn statements and maxims on their heads and understand than going forth, that moving is preferable to standing still. Relativity doesn't apply here Einstein, understand this kind of statement too is funny because it confronts an expression. Understand wordplay might be more important than understanding, that the Black Forest contains secrets of mythological understanding set upon a pedestal of nothingness and lies. Understand that saying you are mighty fine and being mighty fine are one in the same. There is no lie at play here. The clich&eacute; goes that people always lie when they say &ldquo;I'm fine&rdquo; but in this case you should speak it truly. You are fine. You are alive. You are fine. You breathe. You are fine. You can eat a calzone and send that motherfucker down your throat, through your digestive tract and enjoy the crap out of it. </p> </div> <div class="linksteaser"><div class="links"><ul class="links inline"><li class="comment_forbidden first"></li> <li class="node_read_more"><a href="/content/what-you-need-understand-and-preferably-also-not-understand" title="Read the rest of What You Need to Understand and Preferably Also Not Understand.">Read more</a></li> <li class="tweet_Twitter last"><a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=+What+You+Need+to+Understand+and+Preferably+Also%E2%80%A6http%3A/%2Flucubrations.org/content/what-you-need-understand-and-preferably-also-not-understand" class="tweet" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="/modules/tweet/twitter.png" alt="Post to Twitter" title="Post to Twitter" width="16" height="16" /></a></li> </ul></div></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="item-list"><ul class="pager"><li class="pager-first first"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?tag=commentary" title="Go to first page" class="active">« first</a></li> <li class="pager-previous"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=2&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to previous page" class="active">‹ previous</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?tag=commentary" title="Go to page 1" class="active">1</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=1&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 2" class="active">2</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=2&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 3" class="active">3</a></li> <li class="pager-current">4</li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=4&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 5" class="active">5</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=5&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 6" class="active">6</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=6&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 7" class="active">7</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=7&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 8" class="active">8</a></li> <li class="pager-item"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=8&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to page 9" class="active">9</a></li> <li class="pager-ellipsis">…</li> <li class="pager-next"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=4&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to next page" class="active">next ›</a></li> <li class="pager-last last"><a href="/content/lucubrations-front-page?page=58&amp;tag=commentary" title="Go to last page" class="active">last »</a></li> </ul></div> <div class="more-link"> <a href="/recent"> more </a> </div> <div class="feed-icon"> <a href="/rss.xml?tag=commentary" class="feed-icon"><img src="/misc/feed.png" alt="Syndicate content" title="Front page feed" width="16" height="16" /></a> </div> </div> <!-- Column 2 end --> </div> </div> </div> <div id="frontfooter"> <p></p> </div> <br> </body> </html> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div> Front page Mon, 25 Apr 2011 23:51:38 +0000 dbanach 942 at http://lucubrations.org
