Entry for November 30, 2005

Went to a meeting at Ms. Bethel’s about trying to stop the latest urban “removal” in Roanoke, the building of the new social security building, complete with 50 foot security perimiter a a concrete berm on what remains of Henry Street, the former black business district.  Rootshock’s author, Dr. Mindy Fullilove came and spoke at City Council the 21st while I was out of town.  I volunteered to write up something and send it along with her testimony to Oprah, Kurt Navratil, Elaine Fleck, the Co-op and the RPA.
