Today Ruth reads from the Mark Twain Autobiography published after his death. Chapter 2 talks about slavery as Twain knew it in his boyhood before the Civil War. Then Ruth tells the story of her childhood when she stood on one side of a large canyon and listened to a Black Church on the other side of the canyon and how it affected her. July 24 is a Civil Rights Anniversary.
Ruth also reads her comments on "The Ice Caps Are Melting," and how to prepare for rising water.
