Saturday Cup of Joe from Detroit

Week 300 in Detroit.

In college I took an elective course called “Genocide.” It was in the history department but appealed to me as the intersection of history, politics and philosophy. It was taught by the James Farmer visiting professor for civil rights, Greg Stanton. We visited the National Holocaust Museum one Saturday and after our tour, my best friend Brad Frost and I had a chance to speak with Professor Stanton.

He made an interesting comment that I’ve never forgotten.
