The gathering reached across racial and linguistic boundaries, with just about every sentence translated into English or Spanish and leaders from African-American and Latino communities stepping up to the mic. The pre-march dialogue – which put all the whites, blacks and Latinos into mixed groups to swap stories – had the feel of a college community-building seminar. Read the rest of this entry »

Christians branching out with Tangle, a social networking site
