I want to share some thoughts about my seeing
Joan Baez in concert last weekend and going to the Civil Rights Institute
in Birmingham, AL. I walked through the museum and viewed a lot of
artifacts, pictures, and videos from Twentieth Century, and most, including the
“White” and “Negro” water fountains, were from a time that I remember.
The atmosphere at this museum is different from
the atmosphere I’ve seen at many museums. Parents weren’t talking with their
children and explaining things to them.
