The NCCJ’s Anytown

Imagine if Anytown had gotten to us, the city's adults, before we were afraid to be vulnerable and real, before we stopped listening and started repeating rhetoric.

Imagine inner-city residents and suburbanites, Confederacy buffs and Revs. LaSimba Gray and Al Sharpton, gay Unitarians and Southern Baptists, bunking down in the same cabins for an entire week.

Would we have the same disdain for those who live where we don't? Would we need rallies and protests in the parks? Would churches waste a small fortune on newspaper ads denouncing homosexuality?

Let’s all hope that Diversity Memphis continues the NCCJ’s Anytown. All Memphis could use it.

Now go read Wendi Thomas’ column.
