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 – excepting guest posts – are by Martin C. Fredricks IV.

Regardless of what you take away from these posts, I hope you keep coming back. In fact, please consider subscribing below. Either way, thanks for reading.
