My Favorite Part of the #15Now Conference -- Glen Ford's Workshop on Race and Inequality

Sorry for the poor pics.  But anyway, I got to shake his hand.

In the workshop, he reminded us that while everyone has been hurt by the recession, people of color (starting out from a disadvantaged position due to already existing institutional racism) have only been shoved further down the wealth scale.  The fight for 15 must involve ALL of us!




 And here is Glen's excellent report about the conference on The Real News Report:

Make it a habit as I do to check in with The Black Agenda Report, where Glen is Executive Editor.
