Wonderful work Nicole. Tommy Smith's angry comments are as powerful today--perhaps more powerful--than they were in 1968! I truly appreciated your excellent bibliography and would only ask that you make it a separate posting (blog) in order to make sure others see your solid research! Nice, nice work!
