I attended a gathering yesterday at the historic Riverside Church in NYC, memorializing and celebrating the heroic life and multifaceted legacy of Charlene Mitchell. The words of every speaker, especially her dear friend and comrade Angela Davis, were poignant and instructive. Everything else on the program was done with great taste too, capturing Charlene’s passions and strategic acumen as well as her inspirational leadership. The memorial and celebration ended, per Charlene’s request in her will, with the singing of the Internationale.
