“Knew and Knew Not” — some words about Dick Gregory’s Bible Tales from a thing I wrote in the Before Time, just barely pre-Covid.

And for more context, “CRD-1,” mentioned in this document, is the group for whom this Re-Reading Exodus was written, “Cross River Dialogue,” was a small group of white Jews and Black non-Jews, living and working east and west of the Anacostia River in Washington DC.

Also, for clarity, the questions for thought closing this section and the section quoted below, were part of a Counting the Omer project, developed through CRD-1, in 2020.
