The Center for Church and Prison, Inc. is sad to hear of the passing of one of its greatest supporters: The Hon. Dick Gregory. Dick Gregory spoke at our 2013 Conference on The War on Drugs as our Empowerment Dinner Speaker. He was great, inspiring, wise, prophetic and insightful. He was a giant in the field of advocacy, social justice, equality and respect for human dignity. Farewell Hon. Dick Gregory, you were a blessing and a champion of human rights and justice. Your memory and name will live on forever in our consciousness. Rest in Peace!!!

Rushing to a supervisory meeting this morning pass the Univ. of Edinburgh main library, I saw these images on the wall. First I thought it was a joke, no it was real-Sisters at the University of Edinburgh and in Scotland are raising their voices. Couldn't just move on but had to use my phone to capture them. Just then, I got a text from my supervisor that he was running late for 10 minutes. I took the pictures, ran to the Law School and we meet in the elevator. It worked out well. I got my pictures and my supervision in time! There you go with my twist on it.

The modern Black Lives Matter movement depicts the continuity of 18th and 19th centuries attempt on the part of Black intellectuals to deconstruct the philosophical, socio-political, economic and religious arguments asserted in the West to justify the inferiority of Black humanity and Black bodies. Arguments principally advanced by Immanuel Kant, David Hume, Thomas Jefferson and Georg Hegel defined Blacks as intellectually and humanly inferior to Whites thus granting legality and social normality to the dehumanization and lynching of Black bodies. These arguments are still being read in the academy and continue to influence the way Blacks are intellectually and humanly perceived. In that light, Black Lives Matter movement has picked up from where Black intellectuals like W.E.B Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Frederick Douglass, Malcolm X ,Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ella Baker and others left off. The struggle to assert Black humanity, identity and self-hoods take different forms and shapes in the face of unimaginable human destruction and blatant pain caused by law enforcement with legal authority designed to seemingly protect every citizen of the United States regardless of color, class or creed.
