Retired Dow Chemical litigation attorney. Human Resources Executive. American Red Cross Diversity Chief.
“The Slave went free, stood a moment in the Sun and then moved back into slavery.” 
W.E.B. Du Bois’ quote succinctly described his profound disappointment in the promise of Reconstruction. The Civil War, like the  Revolutionary War, accorded America the opportunity to repudiate racism and white supremacy. America chose wrongly. That choice continues to haunt us.
David Wilkins explains these choices and their continuing hold on American life.
