Ruby Sales — Where Does It Hurt?

The civil rights icon Ruby Sales names "a spiritual crisis of white America" as a calling of this time. During the days of the movement, she learned to ask the question, "Where does it hurt?" It’s a question we scarcely know how to ask in public life now, but it gets at human dynamics that we are living and reckoning with.
