i met perkins a few months ago at a small meeting in north portland. he is inspiring. i spoke up about the racism of my childhood and he rightly detected the wounding that I still carry over it. Afterwards, he gave me a fatherly hug and kiss.

I'm glad to hear of this award for him. Thanks for posting it.
