Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Derrick Bell

In honor of Rev Fred L. Shuttlesworth (1922-2011), check out these videos,. The first summarizes facts of his life, the second is of his own reflections. Derrick Bell also died yesterday (1930-2011). He was the first tenured black law professors at Harvard and has written a large body of insightful works for racial advocacy. Below is a video adaptation of his story Space Traders, but read the original here (much better than the video).
