Passing the Torch — To Whom?


Today the nation lost another Civil Rights Icon, Coretta Scott King. We seem to be repeating that phrase quite a lot these days, with different names but the same ominous cadence: a generation of great women and men is passing, people who truly made a difference for subsequent generations. Who will replace them? Where will we find courageous people of conscience and passion, women such as Mrs. King and Rosa Parks?

I invite Trinity students and faculty, and others who read this blog, to share your thoughts on the next generation of civil rights activists and leaders. Who will they be? Is this a role that the rising generations aspire to fill? What will happen if new leaders do not emerge? Please send me your comments — click on the small envelope at the end of this post, or send me your thoughts at
