Wondrous Words Wednesday

April 17, 2019

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

This word is from the movie The Best of Enemies.

1. charrette – In the movie, a KKK leader and a black activist clashed over integration.  Rather than rule on it, a local judge ordered the city council to conduct a charrette, something I’d never heard of.

A charrette is a meeting in which all stakeholders in a project attempt to resolve conflicts and map solutions.

    This is a word that should be shared. I can see why it is not common in today’s America. But it should be.

    I knew that from seeing the movie. And, yet, somehow, I forgot it!
