There are moments in history*--i.e. when Jack Minnis met James Forman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee during the prelude to Mississippi Freedom Summer (1964), or when Cathal Goulding of the Irish Republican Army met Bernadette Devlin of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association at Maghera during the Civil Rights Campaign (1964-1972)--that resonate down through the ages.
*The moments in history that I use as examples are only referenced anecdotally, thus difficult to describe in detail, although I include a pertinent quote from the memoir of Jack Minnis. It is the marriage of strategists and tacticians, or analysts and organizers, that I mean to emphasize.
