Editor's note: The cover art of this issue is

by Pamela Chatterton-Purdy, from her Icons

of the Civil Rights Movement, selections of

which we were honored to publish in our

third issue. Pamela kindly gave us

permission to reuse the 16th Street Baptist

Church icon as a cover for this issue. The

recent act of racism and terror in

Charleston has a historical and social

context that has been too often ignored and

denied. Peace and justice cannot take

root in this void created by ignorance and

denial. We hope this cover image will be

part of the collective voice speaking against

the void, and we hope it honors those to

whom this issue is dedicated.
