Catherine Meeks on Jung, Thurman & King
January 19, 2016 11:53 AM PST

Catherine Meeks states the following regarding her questions about America and it's attitude toward race:

For the past forty-six years I have spent much time thinking about the ways that we can bring healing to America across lines of difference and in particular in relationship to race. Through many years of teaching undergraduates and others in courses dedicated to understanding the many challenges that we face as a multicultural society and years of personal inner and outer work; I have come to the conclusion that the work of dismantling oppression is challenging and complex. And that the efforts to do this work is generally approached in the wrong manner.

She then proceeds to discuss the inward and outward liberation philosophies of Carl Jung, Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King.

An interview with Alexander Cockburn in 2009

In 2009 I interviewed Alexander Cockburn as he traveled through the United States. Cockburn is one of the founders of Counterpunch along with Jeffrey St. Clair. From the Counterpunch website it states: "CounterPunch’s mission, as Alexander Cockburn used to say, is to be as radical as reality. In an age of remote-control journalism, where many “indy news” sites are dry cut-and-paste jobs, CounterPunch publishes every day some of the best writers and most original voices on the Left." This interview was one of those rare opportunities to be the recipient of his acute observations of what was happening in America at the time and his views about the state of media overall. I first saw Cockburn in 1988 at Harvard when he served on a panel at the now renowned conference entitled "Anti-Communism: Its History and Consequences." I was duly impressed of course!
