Collective Courage: African American Cooperatives and the Struggle for Economic Independence

A Talk by Dr. Jessica Gordon Nembhard

Dr. Jessica Gordon Nembhard chronicles the achievements and challenges of African American collective economic action and cooperative development in the struggle for civil rights and economic equality.

You’re welcome…

(8 hours of relaxing nature sounds, my favorite one)

The voices in my head say thus:

What will you do when your 20s are over?  They already are.

OK, then tell me what will you do

when your 30s are over?  What about that?

Well, they say the 30s are the new 20s

And then?  After that?  When your 40s are…

Over?  Why such a stubborn laserbeam pointed at a number?  Why not ask, any given day:

What will you do when your life is over?

What do you mean, what will you do when you’re dead?  You can’t do anything when you’re dead.

Fine, let’s change it to the moments immediately preceding death.  Same question.

I’m not sure I get where you’re going with this.  Are you saying that we should contemplate imminent death each moment?  That’s crazy talk.

But isn’t it true that death is possible at any moment?  The truth is what’s crazy; that’s why we go crazy trying to live by its merciless yet perfect and beautiful rules.  That’s why religion, art, and all redeeming things were created.
