For All White People... Most of them.

BY EMMA KRATOCHWILL
@ VOL 3 ON AUG 06, 2015


While digesting the politically-fueled noise that reignited racial disparities during the 2016 presidential election, freelance writer and public relations professional Emma Dean Kratochwill shares a positive personal perspective on white America, including first-hand experiences as a Mexican migrant worker.  Never dismissing the darkness of past and new civil atrocities, she gleans chortle and self-satire from blissfully ignorant encounters with prejudice, world-changing icons and a most unlikely interracial marriage that transplanted her to the middle of redneck rural U.S.A

Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin/Asheville 2019

BY KYM VERHOVSHEK
@ VOL 21 ON NOV 30, 2018

Kym Verhovshek has partnered with Carolina Jews for Justice and other local social justice groups to bring the unique and profoundly motivational multi-media concert-drama, Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin to Asheville in June 2019. Music often reaches the heart and soul when words can not. The arts and humanities offer hope and inspiration, and this performance will be led by 8+ weeks of educational programming created for and coordinated with area schools, colleges, and the public. The goal is to create awareness by sharing past experiences, and through education and these conversations to participate in shaping the future.
