The Progressive Perspective
IV Words (four · words / fore-words / for-wards / fôr · wərdz) is a forward-looking, forward-thinking, progressive, BS-calling and at times irreverent blog that amplifies progressive issues and voices, works for positive change for all people and is always moving ahead, even when it requires looking back over our collective shoulders. As for the name, say it like you would the Roman numeral “4” plus “words.” Why? Because all the words you read here are by Martin C. Fredricks IV.
