In Bridging Differences
Deborah exchanges views with a different colleague, each for a month or two. Bridging Differences will re-start in September. Her new correspondent will be Harry Boyte, another Minnesotan (although his roots are southern). He has always been a friend and mentor, even though they come to stuff in different ways and even disagree on and off. He is a professor and an activist, a theorist and a practitioner, with a focus on democracy—beginning a long time ago when he worked with Martin Luther King. He has written or edited ten books on the topic and founded a Center on
democracy which is now at St Augsberg College, but formerly at the University of Minnesota.
