Many people have asked me about the meaning of the title of this blog.

One of the original inspirations for doing what we have been doing for the past three years came from listening to an early 1960's interview of gospel singer and civil rights activist Mahalia Jackson conducted by American popular historian and civil rights activist Studs Terkel. For the next several decades until he died in his nineties Studs often told a story about Mahalia that he often characterized as "what it is all about" and "what this world needs now."
