AS WE LEFT AUGUST 2012

SteinbergI keep referencing my book “An Unasuming Love: Black Memory, A Traveloguer And Cricket” because it contains material that needs reflecting on (for those who still care about reflection, who have the time). As we left August, I got the feeling that our Emancipation observances had slipped under the weight and propagation of storm and hurricane news. Just thought – in keeping with Emancipation Month — I’d let you know that slavery as experience, was still relevant at the United Nations as recently as March 2012. What follows however, is not drawn from a 2012 plenary, but based on a 2008 meeting of the United Nations.
