Jim Stewart honors Dave Moore and Linnea Hadaway 25 years, 75-plus cartoon creation called “Spirit of Phillips

Jim Stewart, Wendell Phillips biographer, was an unannounced speaker who surprised Dave Moore and Linnea Hadaway by honoring their 25 years, 75-plus cartoon creation called “Spirit of Phillips.  Stewart”'s spoke about the significance of political cartoons and exclaimed that the genius of Dave and Linnea”'s creation is a wonderful treasure to the community.  A large poster board was given to them with greetings from many of the over 100 in attendance.  Earlier in the evening Dave Moore showed his creative dexterity of venues with an empassioned, rhythmic reading of his poem “A Son of Boston~Agitator.”Â  While Dave”'s style is not akin to the classical oratory of Phillips it has similar results of dynamic interchange with the audience.

“The Alley” Goes to Harvard Law School, Cambridge & Old South Hall, Boston “Spirit of Phillips” to be experienced by its Cartoonist and Editor from Phillips

By Harvey Winje, Editor, The Alley Newspaper Fifty-nine years ago, as a young boy growing up in Phillips, my parents enrolled me at  Wendell Phillips Junior High School on 13th Avenue and East 24th Street where housing stands now north of the Phillips Community Center Pool and Gym.  To the best of my recollection, no one ever told us who Wendell Phillips was or why the school was named from him when it was built in 1926.  The only reference to Wendell Phillips that I can remember is that a picture of him hung in the front lobby of the school. Forty years ago, I spotted a book titled Prophet of Liberty: the Life and Times of Wendell Phillips by Oscar Sherwin in a used book store where a dollar and a half bought me the explanation not given at our junior high school.  The life of Wendell Phillips opened a whole new endeavor of study for me of mid-19th century history.  By learning about the namesake of our community, I was also able to link our community”'s current struggles for human rights and social justice with people like Wendell Phillips who were willing to speak up and passionately debate and agitate for the rights of women, immigrants, slaves, and all other disenfranchised in the 1800”'s.  Learning about the life of Wendell Phillips has not only inspired me but has helped to ground me in my own pursuit of social justice for the Phillips Community in my work with The Alley Newspaper.

By Susan Gust, Amy AusiÉirithe The Alley Newspaper and its editor, Harvey Winje, have been invited to be a part of The Wendell Phillips Bicentennial Symposium at the Harvard Law School Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, June 2 ”“ 4. This exciting invitation was extended to The Alley because the Symposium”'s scholarly planning committee was enthused to discover a vibrant community with Wendell Phillips as its namesake. They were even more pleased to learn that the Phillips Community has embraced Wendell”'s spirit of discord and discourse as its means to seek justice in the same way that Mr. Phillips did some 200 years ago. Harvey Winje and The Alley Newspaper were invited to attend this symposium and present how the life and legacy of Wendell Phillips inspires our work individually and in the community. Dave Moore and Linnea Hadaway”'s poignant Spirit of Phillips cartoons will be also be featured at this symposium as a provocative way to popularize history and to exemplify issues that span generations. Harvey Winje and Dave Moore are honored to travel to Boston in June to attend this symposium and to represent the work of so many in the Phillips Community and in the pages of The Alley Newspaper. Cartoons that have appeared in the pages of The Alley Newspaper will appear as part of the power point presentation given by Wendell Phillips scholar and Macalester College professor, James Stewart, as part of his keynote address at the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, Harvard Law School. Additional cartoons and graphics depicting Wendell”'s words and their relevance in our community will be on display at the symposium. (more…)
