The car is unpacked and we've had a couple of days to rest and reflect about this weekend's wonderful experience in Philadelphia.
A recap via The Arkansas Delta Peace And Justice Center
on 41st Annual Chaney Goodman Schwerner Memorial Service ...
The outdoor service under the big shade trees in front of the Longdale Community Center on the land of the civil rights pioneers the late Cornelius Steele and Mable Steele was very appropriate and very comfortable.
The service was very similar to the great service that was held in 2003: many civil rights movement veterans and others as scheduled speakers and many additional speakers with much speaking truth to power. The question of Why only Killen was often raised, but many other issues as well. Rita Bender and Ben Chaney were eloquent, insightful, and moving as were many others. And Hollis Watkins did his usual wonderful work of facilitating the freedom singing. And I am sure there were no complaints about the food, only compliments.
At least 150 people attended including many civil rights movement veterans, members of Mt. Zion church, Longdale area residents, and others.
It was a labor of love on the part of many, especially the residents of the area.
