The Institute for Southern Studies

Post #1 by 7rob7 » November 22nd, 2013, 7:39 am

This site has come to my attention as a result of the Civitas demand for Gene Nichols' e-mails after his recent N&O column denouncing the denouncible voter suppression laws in NC.

Since our founding in 1970 by veterans of the civil rights movement, the Institute for Southern Studies has established a national reputation as an essential resource for grassroots activists, community leaders, scholars, policy makers and others working to bring lasting social and economic change to the region.

The Institute draws attention to the national importance of the South and offers an exciting vision of the region-a place brimming with a capacity for progressive change that challenges its reputation as a monolithic, conservative stronghold.

Throughout our history, the Institute has maintained a strong commitment to developing research and publication projects that directly support grassroots organizing, especially efforts for corporate and government accountability. It has also led the Institute to be involved in the launching of such organizations as the Brown Lung Association, Southerners for Economic justice, the Georgia Power Project, and the Gulf Tenants Leadership Development Project. The Institute has also examined the southern contribution to culture and social change, from gospel music and the blues to the civil rights movement and community organizing.

Pass it on.

"Civitas", IIRC, is Greek for "morally bankrupt teatard".

In this as in most other cases, I think "teatard" can also be translated as "bleeding rectal ulcer."
