Demonization, guilt by association, and the politics of fear did not triumph, not this time. Let’s hope they never will again.
And let’s hope we might now assert that in our wildly diverse society, talking and listening to the widest range of people is not a sin, but a virtue.
— William Ayers, professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, author of “Fugitive Days” and a co-author of the forthcoming “Race Course.”
