      Rev. James Lawson still has the fire. Love how he called out the names of the female members of the civil rights movement without whom things would have looked very different. Black women have always been getting shit done with little to no recognition.

      PBO went there and I loved every moment . A call to action is the best tribute there is. The theme throughout the Homecoming was vote, vote, vote. Everyone mentioned it in every prayers and speech. Totally here for all of it.

      That is the truth, meta. I could feel my breathing change; my whole body change when PO walked on stage. Then his message totally enveloped me. May it sustain us in the next few months.

    I cannot honor Rep John Lewis by pretending that reality isn’t what it is.

    Either we escape the bubble now or we are all inside it when #DictatorTrump bursts it on if not immediately before 3 Nov.

    Won’t be the first time that exceptionally gifted, kind, accomplished folk operated within a context that their enemy not only rejected, but leveraged against them.

    That is what Trump has been doing since before 21 Jan 2017 (thus his decimation of the GOP) and has continued to do every day since.

    #MakeGoodTrouble means GETTING OUT OF THAT DAMN BUBBLE SUPER FAST and start taking ACTIONS to Extract him from power before it is too late.

    President Obama today:
    “Bull Connor may be gone. But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. We may no longer have to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar in order to cast a ballot. But even as we sit here, there are those in power are doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting — by closing polling locations, and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws, and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the runup to an election that is going to be dependent on mailed-in ballots so people don’t get sick.”

    Good evening TODville.

    What an incredible day, listening to moving tributes to Rep.Lewis.

    I just finished listening to forever first lady’s podcast. I truly and really loved it. Listening to PBO and FLMO … it was so refreshing. I could almost imagine the neighbourhood they lived and worked in. Made me miss that sense of community.

    Have a good evening everyone. Thank you NW for this community you keep open for all of us.
