The Context of White Supremacy hosts the debut study session on Leanita McClain's posthumously published A Foot In Each World. McClain was a superb journalist who had essays published in the Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post. Her columns examined Racism and the terrorism waged against black people in all areas of people activity. She committed suicide in May of 1984 at the age of 32. Her suicide note reveals the degree to which White Supremacy eviscerated her mental health. She wrote: "Do not try to pull my back into this world. I will never live long enough to see my people free anyway." A Foot In Each World is a collection of her various essays that was edited by her former husband Clarence Page. McClain often focused on the city of Chicago, Illinois. Her writings suggest that she endured a great deal of angst about being placed in a better position that most black people. We'll note the consistency of this conflict and compare this to McClain's commentary on the people who decide which black people will be in the so called middle class... White people. #BlackMentalHealth INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
