Exploring Human Experience through Poetry: Respect

Nothing says “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” quite like Aretha Franklin’s version of that great R&B anthem by Otis Redding back in 1967.  Some of us can still remember those days.  For inspiration, check out that classic hit, then spend some time searching your favorite poets for their take on the theme of “respect.”  If you find a poem on the topic for our next literary discussion, make about a dozen copies and bring it along to share. 

As usual, we will explore a facet of human experience through sharing poetry and expounding on our own ideas in the process. This month's topic is respect.  Do join us, with or without poetry in hand.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
