  • Author Colin Greer

    Dr. Colin Greer has been the President of the New World Foundation, a visionary progressive democracy organization, since 1985. He wrote briefing papers on philanthropy and government for First Lady, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, and on education policy for Senator Paul Wellstone. Nowadays, he is most well-known for his contributions to Parade Magazine, his book Choosing Equality: The Case for Democratic Schooling which won the American Library Association’s Eli M. Oboler Intellectual Freedom Award, and his poetry.

“Colin Greer is among the most brilliant minds I know. His poems reflect a rare sensibility. Some bring the Hebrew Bible alive in intimate detail. Others speak of our lives with the fierce urgency of now. Read them, let them work on you.” —Michael Lerner, President and Co-founder, Commonweal “I’ve enjoyed these poems very much. I find them poignant, deeply intelligent and full of heart. They each present an imaginative way of reflecting on the world such as it is and provide much needed perspective.” —Tom Oppenheim, Director at Stella Adler Studio and Harold Clurman Center for Poetry “A call to action, a confession. God, guns and plenty of ammunition. The imagery is distinct and fresh. An inspiration, a provocateur, Greer keeps us thinking, questioning and searching deeply in our souls for unanswered questions to ask.” —Gina Belavonte, Writer, Director and Executive Director, “Beautifully captures singular moments of morality, intimacy, spirituality, and humanity . . . stirs up ghosts of the past while rooted very much in this moment.” —Daniella Topol, Artistic Director, Rattlestick Theater, NYC “These are beautiful poems, wondering out loud, conjuring memetic murmurs of what could be, recasting ancient truth, rewilding our political sensibilities in the context of dangerous times.” —Alnoor Ladha, Co-founder and Executive Director, The Rules
