Magazine Stand :: Valley Voices – Fall 2023

The Fall 2023 issue of Valley Voices includes contributions about experiences of memorable moments in the Civil Rights Movement. Robert Butler’s short memoir presents his experience as a teacher at Tougaloo College and his participation as a marcher in Port Gibson. Diane Williams remembers the riots in Newark, New Jersey, in 1967 when she was a 14-year-old girl.

Creative expressions by other writers include poetic tributes to historical figures, immigrant life, police violence, and racial crimes. Toru Kiuchi’s essay surveys the Kokura Incident and its significance as “a trigger for a true and definite integration in the Army and in the United States.” Charlie R. Braxton’s essay discusses human rights in Africa. Further, Mack Hassler’s empathetic poem about the goose and Ted McCormack’s essay about collective wisdom lead to other issues as well as harmony rather than discord in our global society.

Although Valley Voices has decided not to publish reviews anymore, it did gather a few related to the theme of the issue, including Jerome Berglund’s review of William R. Ferris’s book of photography, I Am A Man.
