Dear friends and colleagues,
Last summer, I joined IFPB's African Heritage Delegation. As a traveled through Palestine/Israel, my experiences growing up in segregated Mississippi informed my understanding of what I witnessed while in the area.
The parallels between the occupied West Bank and the Jim Crow South were striking and heart-breaking, but I also saw also exciting similarities between the movement for change in my youth and the grassroots movements for justice gaining momentum among Palestinians and Israelis.
I know that these facts would be clear to other members of African American communities. That is why I am asking you to help us bring more people to Palestine/Israel by supporting the 2012 African Heritage Delegation. . . We have a goal of raising $5,000 by August 20, and only your support can make that possible. . . .
