“My father told me that the Detroit News ran a story about Ossie Davis that reveals his more progressive side. Now most of us in the know KNEW a bit about this side. We knew for example, that Davis eulogized Malcolm X at his funeral (“he was our shining black prince”, Davis noted). But this story gets a bit deeper. Earl if you’re checking this out you should link this to your post. As an aside, I have written about Grace Boggs before. She’s one of the last true revolutionaries left. Her Center is powerful and needs support.”
