You can not cross Father Lawler’s street

Joseph L Collins Jr
Omaha, NE

Ashland Avenue in Chicago was the street you could cross at 69th street or you would get beat up by White men/boys in the early 60’s. A white priest was a defender of the neighborhood that let that hate happen. God is about Love and that religious leader did not speak it.
