What Role Were you Born to Play in Social Change?
Bill Moyer was a street-wise, working class white boy from rowhouse Philadelphia, who -- in the turbulence of the 1960s -- went to Chicago to work for an anti-racist housing campaign. He wound up joining Martin Luther King Jr.'s national staff as an organizer. I played tag football more than once with Moyer, catching his grin as he mercilessly overwhelmed his opponents through daring and smarts. He might have been the most joyfully aggressive Quaker I've known.
