The subtitle is deceptively linear Black Panthers Tibetan Buddhists The ongoing fight for racial euality for Black Americans I don t always find spiritual autobiographies inspiring but this one wasWhat does one do when the oppressor s blood courses in one s own veins How could I run away from myself How to make peace with such horrific originsGiven such history the uestioning of origins though painful was unavoidable p 13 Again the Dalai Lama said Patience is most important But if you are certain there is no other alternative to violent action if you are clear and certain about this then what you must do is this First you must think lovingly and with compassion about the policeman If you think or call him a pig then you must let him shoot you But if you can wish him well and pray for his future happy rebirth then of course you can stop him from harming the others You can stop him by any means necessary We were relieved and amazed p 182Though we all possess innate purity clarity strength and potential to be infinitely wise and compassionate beings still we need someone to encourage us and show us how to manifest those ualities p 305I call myself a Baptist Buddhist not to be cute or wittybut because it is an honest description of who I feel I am When I was on that planeI felt sheer and utter terror and I called on both traditions for help Long ago Kierkegaard had argued that one doesn t know what one really believes until one is forced to actMost times actually I think of myself as being an African American BuddhistbutI call on both traditions It is a deep response p 311

characters Dreaming Me ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Nell University An early experience of marching with Martin Luther King Jr in Birmingham sets her on a path of activism and as so many others did Willis faced the dilemma of violence or peace. Jan Willis has had a remarkable life journey Her voice in this account is modest and calm The reader has to pay attention to what she doesn t say to grasp her academic achievements Her early learning of Hindi Sanskrit and Tibetan languages her successful academic career Her story is personal but deeply rooted in a particular history She writes of growing up outside of Birmingham Alabama in a time when the KKK were unrestricted and when the appearance of black performers on television would be blocked out by the stations intervening in the broadcast by putting out a a sign that said trouble along the cable rather than put a black face out on the airwaves She also documents the healing of the hurt caused by racist experiences through the practice of Tibetan Buddhism She describes her relationships with her Tibetan teachers with a loving care This healing is a life long process one which doesn t exclude activism She writes about a choice after college between going to study in Tibet versus joining the Black Panthers Although she chose Tibet she maintains a loyalty to the work of the Panthers and close ties to the Civil rights movement especially through her role as a teacher She does this without repudiating her ambivalent childhood experiences in her parents Black Baptist church Through her example she provides a model of how to combine activism and self care Although understated this is a powerful and moving book The short afterward by Bettina Aptheker is also worth reading she offers perspective on the deep meaning of Jan Willis s narrative of healing
