Oh they'll love me all right. It will take time, but they'll love me.
Session One is named for Carla DuPree's forthcoming novel Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which gleans its title from the following Miller Williams' quote: "Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.
You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone." Revolutionary daughters
begin the summer by contemplating their story. What does it mean to live in this skin, with the color red between my knees, in this country here? What are the confines of particular narratives? What are the gifts? They explore these concepts with the support of two texts, a film, and a classic album. Daughters produce spoken, written, and digital products that illustrate their application of ideas and emotions earned. They begin to rehearse for the end-of-summer production and acquire new, useful vocabulary terms. The following transformational media guide the first session.
