Not sure I agree with him.. Nat Turner, MLK, Fannie Lou Hamer and many more were deeply committed Christians who were far from "really stupid" and the great brother Kwame Ture reminds us not to judge an institution on its adherents but rather on its principles. Also, black churches throughout Amerikan history served, among other functions, as refuge from the miserable existence of "life" on a plantation. This guy's analysis is divisive and shallow.

Hey friends, so the DC Jail Library is in Mayor Gray's budget ($193,000!), but David Catania chairs the committee in charge of that budget (through DC Public Libraries), and has not committed to keeping it funded as is. This is a little late going up, but after some struggles with very basic technology we have a list of call-in slots for calling Catania TOMORROW (FRIDAY). The script is on here too. Please sign up and take a minute out of your day with us tomorrow! http://slottr.com/sheets/5445

We did it! Your voice helped convince Mayor Gray to allocate $193,000 in new funds to create the DC Jail Library!

But we have one last step to take to make sure this really happens. The mayor's budget - including the funds for the library - has to be approved by the DC Council. Council Member (and mayoral candidate) David Catania is the chair of the Education Committee, and it's not clear if he'll leave funding for the library intact.

Join us in telling Council Member Catania to preserve the $193,000 for the DC Jail Library. Email Catania today at dcatania@dccouncil.us, or call him with us at (202) 724-7772 anytime on Friday! Use the sample script below.

We'll also be tweeting at @DavidCataniaDC on Friday afternoon, using the hashtag #BookstoDCJail. Join us!

Dear Council Member Catania,

I am a DC voter and I urge you to support the creation of a library at the D.C. jail. Mayor Gray recently allocated $193,000 in the FY-15 budget for this proposal, which would allow inmates at D.C.'s Central Detention Facility to access reading material and other D.C. Public Libraries resources and services.

Access to books and vocational and educational resources reduces recidivism and gives incarcerated citizens a sense of hope and possibility that can help them turn their lives around and benefits their communities and society at large.

I hope I can count on your support for this low-cost, high-reward initiative.

Sincerely,
[[full name]]
