    i too am a veteran of Civil rights marches, women’s movement, mobilization against the Vietnam War. I thought we were done. But we have gone back and it’s worse than before. There r no leaders to follow. No Dylan’s songs to sing loudly to. It’s like that song “no one can find the war”. America, u r just not looking anymore. You have lost your will. U r right this is just a crying shame on us. Crying. That’s what I need to do. And then get organized young people. Find a leader. Care passionately. Get out there and start the movement all over again. We still have war, we still hate women, and we still are racist. Anyone hear me???

    Richard Anderson posted the following, http://publichistorycommons.org/the-ncph-meets-in-baltimore-next-year/. In the editor’s note is a list of public history resources compiled over the past few days regarding the past and present of racial violence, policing, economic inequality, and uprisings in Baltimore. I couldn’t get the links to post here in the comments, but please give this article a look if you have concerns about context for discussions about historic underpinnings of the events in Baltimore.
