Those forces of opposition to the Dream find their strength through delay, whether Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream, The Dreamers (young first-generation sons and daughters of immigrants), the Native American belief that Life is one big Dream, or the American Dream itself.
The January issue and the first of a new year, an election year, and a pivotal point in the great American experiment two days removed from the anniversary of the Insurrection, Three-Fifths Magazine offers Medicinal words of Healing and encouragement. We position ourselves to forge forward against every headwind of delay, denial, deferment, dissolution, and indifference placed before BIPOC marginalized communities and their allies.
“Dreams by Langston Hughes, ‘A Dream Deferred is a Dream Denied!’
“Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow.”
Poetry Scripture from Langston Hughes.
