CRS, Herbert, Wright

Today New York Times columnist Bob Herbert writes that Rev. Jeremiah Wright is bad news for racial reconciliation in America (and for the presidential candidacy of Wright’s most prominent parishioner). 

 Tomorrow Herbert speaks at the 125th anniversary luncheon of the Community Renewal Society, the local civil rights project founded and supported by Wright’s denomination, the United Church of Christ — Wednesday, April 30, 12 noon at the Fairmont Hotel, 200 N. Columbus.  Herbert will give the keynote, speaking on “Poverty Beyond the Bush Years.”

PS – Monroe Anderson has a different view of Wright’s reemergence.
