When Jesus called and vetted his disciples for the work of spiritual transformation, he rejected one of his recruits with these words, “Let the dead bury the dead.” Why is it that when transformational work is required that we use the most vulnerable? We continue to use children, and their right to a quality education for racial reconciliation. Now we turn to the dead for racial reconciliation. Really?
City Council homogenized our history! The past is preserved to teach us. I am adamantly opposed to revisionist history from the hands of anybody or any bodies with the power to shape and reshape our stories! The deletions and distortions of contributions from African Americans to the building and blooming of our country spurred the need for Black History Month. Women’s History Month was birthed from the same darkness. I’m sensitive from double exposure.
