You spoke to my heart, Angela. Thank you for speaking such words of truth and as far as I am concerned, terrorists isn’t too strong a term for them. To watch the Constitution that I had sworn to protect from all enemies, foreign and domestic, be desecrated that day was truly a low moment for me in terms of trust in this nation. Keep up the good fight and to adapt Congressman John Lewis’s, “get into a little good trouble!”

I’ve never had death threats but when my research on creating inclusive mathematics programs was reviewed in the NYTimes thirty years ago I got a barrage of hate emails that I had the audacity to think ( and show evidence) that women and students of color could be successful in STEM fields. Good for you Angela. Keep standing in your truth.

I just wrote my first piece about Christian Nationalism this week. If you have time, please read it. I have written with my Christian friends in mind, but not getting a lot of reaction, so far. I'm very concerned for the cultish aspects of the Trumpism surrounding us. However, my husband and I have actually found an Evangelical church (non-denominational whose leadership and most members are not Trumpers. Two years ago, God used my husband to get us out of a church full of Trumpers. I still consider the people to be Christian, but sadly deceived in that regard. Other non Trumpers are the publishers of "Christianity Today." I still get a lot out of their magazine. Thank God not all Evangelicals have drunk the Trump Kool aid!

Thirty years later most of the detractors are gone and the Academic Excellence Workshops continue thriving around the country.
