Noah and Ben slaughtered two goats as a test for a goat meal
we will have next weekend. Ben is from
Burkina Faso and is a master baker. Noah
started a barbecue club at Bard College and wrote
his senior thesis on race and class and pork.
Ben grew up in a country where he learned
about meat. Today we listen to Frederick Douglass say
What to the Slave is the Fourth of July
and we discuss in a new way how much
we took for granted how much we don’t know
how much we have to learn today we celebrate
the forms independence takes how linked
we are to one another and today because of Noah
and Ben we will celebrate goats.
