Trying to make amends but failing.

Kate Beem,
Independence, MO

I am white and middle class. I grew up in a town in SE Missouri whose population was about evenly split between Black and whites families. But the wealth was overwhelmingly held by white farmers who still maintained sharecropping relationships. Even as a child, I recognized the inequality. I have been trying for 50 years to make amends for what I witnessed but often did not call out.
