Project Statement

by C. Meador


Forthcoming.

Long Slow March

Clifton Kirkpatrick Meador

title note: The title plays on both senses of the word "March"--the Selma to Montgomery march took place in the month of March. An "A" lingering in the middle of one of the title pages suggests that the title can also be "A Long Slow March." [E. Rettberg]
