Major progressive shifts in politics and policy can result. I invited colleague and friend Virginia Eubanks to join this project because her background in women’s studies and her work on welfare rights and economic justice organizing complemented my strengths in race, ethnicity, and urban politics. I was raised by my mother and grandmother in post-independence Jamaica in an atmosphere that regarded my Blackness and femaleness as positives and as sources of strength. Our newly independent nation designated Nanny, an escaped slave who successfully led insurrections to defeat the British, as a national shero.
She graduated from Fort Valley State College in the mid-forties, a small Black college at that time—segregated Black college—in Georgia. My father had been in World War II, or at least he was in the armed services. Given our birth date, it was as the war was ending that they were together. According to this first cousin of my mother who I always called Aunt Isabel, he came to Cleveland with a ring. And he stayed at the YMCA. Apparently he did not pass muster with my grandmother and with the great-aunts.
I came of age during the height of the Civil Rights era. I was in elementary school in 1954, when the Supreme Court ruled on Brown v. Board of Education. The Montgomery bus boycott happened in ’55. Emmett Till was murdered. All these things happened during the time I was coming of age. It was such a terrible time to be Black. I lived in a world where Black people were assumed to be inferior, to be less, to be incompetent, incapable, criminal, immoral. I was sheltered in some ways because of being a child in the North, where we had de facto segregation, instead of the South’s harsher de jure version.
