The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Lorne Cress Love. We’ll get her reflections on this past weekend’s tribute to her sister, author and attempted counter-racist scientist Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. The ceremony was held at the historic Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, D.C. Ms. Cress Love told the thousands in attendance that more than lofty words, black people’s actions should reflect our appreciation and understanding of Dr. Welsing’s teachings and decades of service. Since Ms. Cress Love last spoke with us, she and the Cress family suffered the loss of Barbara Cress Lawrence. We’ll ask her for additional reflections on her time as a SNCC activist and her observations of Whites wanted to “help” black people during the Civil Rights Movement. We’ll also discuss her efforts at constructing independent media outlets for black people. Ms. Cress Love should have information on how listeners can contribute to the efforts to create educational material for black children based on the teachings of Dr. Welsing.
