The second piece is an essay I am writing on the connection between Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy, two men committed to fighting poverty and war and who were deeply committed to Civil Rights. As you know, they were both murdered within two months of one another in the spring of 1968.
I am delighted to be a part of The Black Lion and honored to have a platform for my writing.
My essay, “A Great Law of Peace,” about my attempts to learn, live, and to teach peace will be appearing at ChildReach this coming week (a link will be forthcoming). I also learned that Open Thought Vortex (OTV) will be publishing my poems “Sevens,” “Mistake(s) by the lake,” and “Little Boy Blue(s)” about the cities of Windsor, Ontario, Cleveland, Ohio, and St. Louis, Missouri.
I wasalso delighted to learn that the inaugural issue of Landlocked Lyres will be featuring my poems “City on the Hill,” “Mr. and Mrs. Bridge,” and “Warren Avenue.”
