    Busboys & Poets Turns 10

    Steps away from history explains my initial response to listening to Angela Davis speak at the Busboys & Poets X Anniversary Party last night. Davis’ commanding voice and prose praised the Washington bookstore for their local, slow food and decried the continued imprisonment of political prisoners. Then Bill Ayers came on stage to speak about social justice in education. That was only the first thirty minutes of the evening event!
