Adam's Comments To NAACP’s Peekskill Chapter Protest & Dialogue
250 years after the unrealized promise of the Declaration of Independence;
150 years after the end of slavery, “its badges,” and the amendments we passed in a failed attempt to move past our nation’s original sin;
50 years after MLK awoke our consciousness and moral imagination by helping all Americans see the “sweltering heat” of racial injustice:

Thank you to Peekskill’s NAACP Chapter for convening a thoughtful and uplifting protest and constructive dialog today. I was honored to participate.
