In Their Words: “‘Long Slow Train’ comes from a phrase you hear from people who have been involved in the struggle for equal rights all these years. The one bit of hope is — ‘It’s a long, slow train, but it’s still moving.’ You have to be involved. You still have to be present to win. It’s not going to be magic and happen instantly. You have to hang in there. No change is gonna just be magic. It’d be nice if it was, but it’s not always that way. In writing about race and what I see happening in our country right now, hopefully, I’ve learned some things about myself, and speaking up, and and doing the best I can to have a conversation.” — Kate Campbell
