Entering the final days of Black History Month we remember the assassination of Malcolm X 50 years ago. I was a clueless and very white 4th grader on 21 February 1965 and while I knew, in a 4th grader sort of way, who Martin Luther King was, I would not learn of Malcolm X for […]

With gracious thanks to Florence Reece and Peter Seeger… Nearly five months have passed since Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown and while the vital conversation in our nation surrounding the events of 9 August continues, I have decided to no longer keep this internal thread stuck to the top of Have Coffee Will […]
