A Note From the Editors

A note from the editors,

A few months ago we uncovered a series of digitized and newly restored film from The Poor People’s Campaign in 1968. Seeing the revived material in motion and color remind us it wasn’t that long ago. Photographer Jill Freedman on Resurrection City:

      Of course, it was old stuff from the start. Another nonviolent demonstration. Another march on          Washington. Another army camping, calling on a government that acts like the telephone                  company.

      Even poverty is ancient history.  Always have been poor people, still are, always will be. 

      Because governments are run by ambitious men of no imagination. Whose priorities are so             twisted that they burn food while people starve. And we let them.      

       And no news is new.

February looks at anti-poverty movements in the United States.
