Today's reading of a famous speech goes back 70 years. On this date 70 years ago the great intellectual civil rights giant W.E.B. Dubois speak to an audience of young black men and women about the fortune and mission of rebuilding the south. I hope that this reading captures the spirit and need of erasing illiteracy in our black communities. We cannot accept, nor should we accept that any of our brothers and sisters be challenged by the written word. That's why I do what I do. To illuminate the need to eradicate illiteracy in our communities. Please join me in this struggle because strategic comprehension-based literacy is a civil right that must be enjoyed by every American. No matter his/her economic, educational, or racial standing.
