What does retirement have to do with civil rights? diversity? social justice?

A quick note to readers of the Emmett Till blog —

You are invited to drop by my newest blog, The Retirement Monologues at, where I am focusing on the latest retirement issues that face many of us as we march on through life. Not financial planning (everyone else worries about that), but fun stuff like what are you going to be doing as you retire. Travel? Go fishing? Write blogs that matter?

It would be particularly interesting to hear comments that relate to civil rights, discrimination, inclusion, diversity, social justice, and more.

I will be interviewing lots of people, commenting on related social and political issues, and trying to pass on some of the more unique and interesting aspects of retiring and staying engaged. If you know of someone who would make a good interviewee, please let me know.

Meanwhile, please drop by and say hello. I would love to have your comments on posts and I am always looking for contributed articles to post on this topic. I have targeted this blog to women’s issues, but hey, everyone is invited to drop by and share their thoughts.

BTW, just finished a blog post on women who are leaving the workforce to start up their own businesses because they are sick and tired of the discrimination wars. Any thoughts?

I thought about Fannie Lou Hamer who was “sick and tired of being sick and tired.” She was certainly a great lady and someone to remember during Women’s History Month.,

Thanks and Take Care,

Susan Klopfer
