Gordon Gartrelle Says: Chitlins and Gefilte Fish Will Still Be Served




One of the things I've learned from this project is that neither Blacks nor Jews are great with deadlines.

So I'm granting a few extensions--C&G will be running for a few more days. Keep your noses open.

Gefilte fish! yumm.

I'd like to point you to a story about the amazing work of two women, one Jewish, one Black, who worked together for civil rights in the early sixties.

Dr. Dorothy I. Height, president of the National Council of Negro Women and her friend and colleage Polly Cowan created Wednesdays In Mississipi, a project of interfaith, inter racial women working together to create justice.

there is now a documentary film being made about this project. You can see some early clips here
