Poetry. From the Forward: The tragedy of Jonestown [and Jim Jones] occurred in 1978. It is amazing to me that we have not demanded better explanations of what happened. As I travel and talk with people, I find that most of them do not believe what they have been told. Yet we still know very little. I must as the question: If 900 white people had gone to a country with a Black minister and 'committed suicide', would we have accepted the answer we were given so easily?
