   While we often define Minorities by color, religion or culture, the best definition involves concepts of power and influence.

rt_arrow.jpg (780 bytes) Resistance

In looking at historical events thematically, we hope to bridge the gap between the past and the future.  The colors, religions and cultures will change.  The particulars and patterns of Repression, Resistance and Reform will not.
