We’re almost twins, Andrew Gillum and I — except for his being young, black and straight; his mom having driven a school bus; his becoming Tallahassee’s youngest city commissioner at 23 and mayor at 35 (now running for governor), my last election having been for high school class treasurer.

If you have 5 minutes, watch Andrew’s story.

I don’t take sides in Democratic primaries; but if Andrew wins, I’ll be with him all the way.

“When We Rise” is the 8-hour ABC docudrama you missed last week that chronicles the equal rights movement Cleve Jones helped lead.  Click here to watch it on YouTube.  America’s capacity to overcome prejudice (“Irish need not apply!”) has never been better on display than here.
