Dear Faulkner University –if moral guidance is the driving force of your faith, I suggest you revoke your invite to Donald Trump Jr. However, if your true God is that of Republican idolatry and the falsity of white evangelical Christianity as moral truth, go ahead and keep the door open. But I ask, who do you worship? President Mike Williams of Faulkner University was at Harding University when I vocally called the Harding out for what I saw as white supremacy in its hiring of professors and beliefs when I was a student. Share this with him, it will not surprise him that I am calling Faulkner out. Go Jesus!!! He likes rich white Christian men.
I mentioned the filming of this movie in my hometown of Montgomery, Alabama earlier this year to a number of my colleagues. Watch the trailer and be prepared to get goosebumps. Wow!!!
I cannot count how many times I have driven over the Edmund Pettis’ Bridge when visiting family in Selma. See at 1:40 on clip. Side note: On the other side of the bridge is NBF homes — a Selma housing project I grew up in before we moved to Montgomery. The bridge links downtown Selma to the more rural areas which is pointed out in this clip. In terms or race and the South, that is a significant point. It amazes me how little black teens ponder the significance of that bridge when I am in town. Today Selma is predominately black due to white flight. I recall my shock when I met or saw a white person in Selma. I am pretty sure Janette was the only white person around when we visited.
