Mike Freedman is shown here discussing things with long-time partner Marvin Kalb at a 2019 Kalb Report featuring astronaut Michael Collins (in the background). Mike and Gil Klein were my sponsors when I joined the National Press Club that year. Freedman passed on September 18.

NPC -- Kalb Report: "50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing" (w/Michael Collins) (126 images)
The new Now and Forever windows were dedicated at the National Cathedral on September 23. The windows, designed by Kerry James Marshall which will be accompanied by a poem by Elizabeth Alexander, replaced the Confederate windows for Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson which were removed in 2017. Removing the windows was taken after the mass shooting at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC in 2015 caused the cathedral to rethink what message they were trying to show. Promoting the Confederate states which committed treason to preserve slavery apparently didn't fit the current mission. Who'd have guessed?
