Americans Who Tell the Truth

This collection of portraits of Americans Who Tell the Truth is truly inspirational and something I’d like to spend a lot more time with.

Depicted below are my personal inspiration Ella Baker, and my personal friend (!) Stan Goff.

Ella Baker Stan Goff

When I first started in participating in online communities in the early 90’s I chose the handle Ella_Baker to show how I was inspired both by her dedication and by her visionary (if not visible) leadership. The sad thing is that no-one ever recognized it as a pseudonym and folks just called me Ella.

Stan has been a friend for years, epsecially after bonding on many trips to protest together in Fayetteville, Raleigh, and DC and after Brian and I set up his blog. It’s an honor to know an activist and hero like him.

One thought on “Americans Who Tell the Truth

  1. Very Cool. Robert Shetterly actually lives up here in Maine, and I first saw his work displayed at a Peace Conference at U Maine a few years ago. I’d highly recommend seeing the work in the flesh if you get a chance. Very powerful indeed.
