On the serious side, the education of our young is probably the most serious subject we have to deal with today. This problem is especially acute in the black community where literacy falters the most. There are many reasons for this, but the most acute is the lack of "predevelopment" in the home prior to their entrance into our school systems. The subject of "IRD" was especially developed with the lack of pre-development of children from poor backgrounds in mind. This agenda is presently being pursued at the highest levels of our government, but we must all come together as a community with a thorough understanding of the needs of these children.

Professor Carson,

I am delighted to start finding my way around this site and look forward to returning often. I just now signed up at the urging of Dr. Monica Tetzlaf in South Bend. I'm not sure if it will show up, but I tried putting into my profile here a link to a tribute I gave in a Quaker magazine for Dr. King on the 30th anniversary of his tragic death:

I look forward to sharing recollections from the '60s "Movement Days," but for now let me just commend you on not only bringing together hundreds of interested and dedicated folks here, but also making that crucial connection between the movement in India (and the preceding one in South Africa) and in the States. Truly a turning point in human history.

Thanks again, -DHF

PS - I hope you might be familiar with a weekly program produced om Atlanta by my sister: "The Paula Gordon Show: Conversations with People at the Leading Edge" which has featured many of the heroes and exemplars that both of us would put in our top listing of those who have affected history for the better:

Hi Dr. Carson. This is Joycelyn Wilson, from Morehouse. Thanks for inviting me to join the network. Please visit my page. I've recently started posting pictures from the hip hop studies conference I just put on at Morehouse last week. It went really really good. This was the first type of intellectual gathering such as this at Morehouse. The students had a great time. I look forward to seeing you when you come for graduation.

I love this site! What a great idea. We are opening a building for the Civil Rights Heritage Center we've had at Indiana University South Bend since 2000 and it will be great to get ideas from the site.
Thanks for creating this.

Thank you, Dr. Carson, for the invitation. I will be eager to discover the dialogue that you are creating. It sounds very exciting, and the theme resonates deeply with me. Warmly,
Shelly (I am very pleased to be addressed that way!)

Hello Dr. Carson,
I really enjoyed meeting Dr. King's son and am going to start a conversation on it on this site. It would be great if you could join in!

This is a wonderful initiative and I would like to use this opportunity to commend you for bringing all those who share in the Gandhian-King philosophy of non-violence. This philosophy changed the course of human history into dignity for all. Professor Clayborne thank you so much. You will here much from me in subsequent comments

What's the reason that you don't reply to my last 2 mails?

Hello sir, this Shouvik Mukherjee, from a small town near named Serampore Kolkata, West Bangal, India! I am really very happy to see this network on Mahatma Gandhi! Thank you sir! Thanks a lot!

Hi Gautam,
Yes, I agree that such a panel would be useful, but it is difficult -- due to scheduling conflicts and expense -- to bringing a large number of such leaders together at one time. The King Institute and other entities at Stanford will continue to provide opportunities for veterans of the Freedom Struggle to talk about their experiences. During the past several years, speakers on campus have included Julian Bond, Clarence Jones, Dorothy Cotton, Vincent Harding, and others. We are currently seeking to sponsor similar events.

Hi Clayborne,
Thanks for your welcome. We are preparing for MLK day here at Lee University. Will you consider coming to give a lecture/presentation on MLK day here? I am interested in your work in the area of Ghandi's influence on Dr. King and the implications it has for us today.

Hi Clay,
I was reminded of our class because I just started reading John Carlin's "Playing the Enemy/Nelson Mandela and the Game that Made a Nation." Have you read it? It's great. What an amazing story, with lots of themes reminiscent of Gandhi and King. Your trip to India looked like a great experience! Hope you're well and having a good fall.
All the best,

It will be a pleasure to collaborate closer with you, papá Clay, and your team.

Thanks for creating this space. It's already gathering a powerful energy from any number of satyagrahis. When the world is burning, the right question to ask is "What is being born?" and _we_ are being born. ;-)

Have a ONE-derful weekend!
If you want to be a rebel, be kind. Human-kind, be both.

Hello Sir, this is Pooja also from Grade 7- Riverside (India). We have started a group of the "Man Behind The Mahatma" which is a partenered project with ACK and we would like you to start a discussion with us about that project.
Awaiting Reply,
