LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Column explains African American struggle

I just wanted to express my gratitude for your article “When Going Home is a Crime” (Charlie James’ “The Bottom Line,” May 2014). Thank you for rendering visible what would have, for me, remained invisible without your elegant analysis. The cultural, political and historical contexts provided by your piece are illuminating and amply demonstrate the value of thoughtful consideration of an issue from multiple perspectives.
