The E-Dictionary

ethelbert millerFrom literary activist E. Ethelbert Miller, the board chairperson of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a board member of The Writer’s Center and editor of Poet Lore magazine (a recommendation of Rose Berger):

It’s my belief that in order to usher in a better society a new language and vocabulary will need to be created. I’ve slowly started developing my own personal new dictionary. This creation I feel will help add clarify to my understanding of the things taking place around me. Many of the words and terms I’ve coined or have “borrowed” from others can be linked to our technology changing how we live. In my essays and public conversations I try to use these words as often as possible. So far I have 14 entries in my dictionary. Here they are.

1. Moral imagination
2. Contaminated moral environment
3. Race porn
4. Recycled racism
5. Word embrace
6. Deep State
7. Digital Bunkers
8. Cultural pilgrims
9. Deep dish conversations
10. Decision fatigue
11. Race resurrection
12. Spiritual solidarity
13. Culture tank
14. Digital curator
