Voices

These voices have brought this middle aged white woman to her knees, and then rose with more determination to raise my voice louder for my brothers and sisters of every color, creed and culture. Thank you Jonathan.

So glad I found you

As a podcast consissuer, who is constantly looking for new shows to comfort me, engage me, make me laugh and always educate me. Also you have an amazing voice that keeps me captivated.

Back to my youth, with heart and mind engaged

I really thank Mr. Capehart and WaPo for presenting this series of podcasts, Voices of the Movement.

I was born in 1952 in San Jose, CA, where I still live, a now-retired, white, once-kid of The Era. The podcast reminds me of why we sang folk songs -- *protest* songs -- in the '60s partly in support of our FoCs (Friends of Color and, sorry, I just made that label up), whether we knew them individually or not.

There were many I both knew and treasured. Also, one cannot play jazz (as I have attempted *forever*) without respecting the many artistic, intellectual, and moral contributions of our fellow citizens whose skin isn't white like mine.

If you're a child of the '50s and/or '60s, this series of discussions will take you back. If you're younger than that, my hope is that you'll be inspired by hearing these stories eloquently told.

Pride and courage to you, Mr. Capehart, and to all of your guests, icons or otherwise.

Highly recommended!
