One of the major spiritual questions of our time for white people is not 'can we embody compassion and love while remaining in denial about racial oppression?' but rather, 'can we embody compassion and love while fully acknowledging, directly confronting, and engaging in the struggle against, racial oppression?'

what people are saying about drew

"I have to say the CD is really tight. Drew's presentation weaves genius poetics with jaw-dropping lecture segments outlining the synergy between the cosmological worldview and life's work of Martin Luther King Jr. and the incomparable Thomas Berry. You CANNOT find this anywhere else in all of art or academia. Get the book and the CD...and listen to a few poems, then the lectures, and then read some more poems!!!!"
