"The History Behind the Headlines" by Ruby Sales

Note:  Ruby Sales (above) is a veteran of the Civil Rights movement past and present, who directs the Spirit House project.  I highly recommend following their "Breaking the Silence on Modern Day Lynching" Facebook page, where they are relentlessly documents police murders of young people of color.  Her thoughts on the deep history of this issue are below.  

Movement building is serious business that demands an understanding and knowledge of who are our friends and who are our foes.  The Movement is not a place for ahistorical thinking or emotional decisions that are devoid of hindsight, insight and foresight.  The powerbrokers build and maintain their power on the backs of our collective dis-memory and our uncritical acceptance of official narratives as well as our desire for a sound analysis of the world while refusing to read!
