I was a child when Yugoslavia dissolved & during the Bosnian War; my family made refugees. Now I'm a scholar of reactionary, illiberal/authoritarian regimes. There's not many off-ramps left, America. This is extraordinary; you & your elected officials must respond accordingly.
" ... to use my voice, my pen, or my vote, to advocate the great and primary work of the universal and unconditional emancipation of my entire race.” Frederick Douglass, My Bondage and My Freedom, 1855 from library of William Pickens, with his notes
It’s my birthday & I’m hoping some of you might order my #Gellhorn book either as a treat for yourself or a gift for a friend from a favourite bookshop.
If you do, please DM a receipt & your snail mail address & I’ll write you a letter about her. #May26
