Truth in Progress


In the fall of 2003, the Rev. Gil Caldwell and Marilyn (they refer to themselves as EB, elder brother, and YS, younger sister) began an extensive email correspondence, entitled Truth in Progress: Letters in Mixed Company, sharing their personal life experiences of being black/white, straight/lesbian, older/younger, with cane/without cane, and male/female. Through this frank and unusual exchange, they began to peel back layers of things talked about and things not talked about between communities, whether or not experiences of injustice are comparable, and who can speak to these issues with integrity. They came to see that defining and voicing their perspectives led to a larger truth, a “truth in progress” as the layers of experience continue to reveal themselves. They published a limited edition of Selections from Truth in Progress: Letters in Mixed Company in 2007. Purchase your copy here.
