Mixed Bag

by Peter Molenaar Unlike the esteemed guru who, it is said, once transcended all earthly attachments, the rest of us are bound to the spiritual ups and downs which reflect the satisfactions and irritations of our existence. St. Paul”'s Church, 11-11-11”¦ It was in conjunction with the 200th birthday of Wendell Phillips, renowned opponent of all forms of oppression, that this paper celebrated its 36 years.  The evening unfolded as a high pinnacle event for the activist community of this neighborhood. There was as well a high-point moment for this writer.  Despite his many years of socialist rantings in the space of this column, there was a warm ovation from an audience which included small business people.  So, let it be said:  The Welnas and Ingebretsens will have their place well into the future.

“To Catch the Glow”

By Wendell Phillips Stafford, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, from 1911 Centennial Speech “”¦Not many men deserve to be remembered on their hundredth birthday; but Wendell Phillips”'s second centennial may be better observed than his first.  ”¦” “”¦The battle has moved onward; there are fighters in the field.  It is not an hour for curse or lamentation.  It is an hour for consecration of knighthood, for vigil, and for vow.  We do not come to praise you, Wendell Phillips; you have received already your eternal great reward.  We have come to catch the glow of your great spirit and resolve to make our lives like yours.  Here, where a century ago your life began, we are gathered to celebrate your coming with deep thanksgiving and with solemn joy, pledging ourselves anew to the grand purpose to which your life was devoted”“a war against all oppression, for the liberty of all!” * Excerpts of 30 Pg speech Nov.28th at Park St. Church, Boston

What”'s on your mind? What makes you optimistic about life in the neighborhood? What makes you angry. Tell Wendell Phillips on 11-11-11

Phillips Community is named after Wendell Phillips an extraordinary champion of racial and economic justice. Just how cool is that?   The community”'s name announces to the world that the people of Phillips stand for equality for each of us and justice for all of us! Phillips was born 200 years ago in Boston, Massachusetts. He became famous across the USA for hating slavery, condemning racial prejudice, demanding women”'s rights and defending Indigenous peoples from land-hungry white people and the US Army. Everything he demanded back then is just as important to the people of Phillips today. What if Wendell Phillips came back to life today? What would he say about the continuing abuse of immigrants, the continuing spread of poverty, police brutality, and violence against women, gang violence and white racism? What advice would he give the people of Phillips? (more…)
