The past weeks activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington have left me humbled and introspective. The experiences ranged from reflective moments through the eyes of visual artists to two gatherings on the hollowed grounds of the Lincoln Memorial. Each experience housed an opportunity to look at the civil rights movement and struggle for equality from varied perspectives. Over the next few days I'll share some of the impressions that have contributed to an expansion and understanding that I had not anticipated. The photo above highlights the continued inclusiveness of the struggle. Then like now it will take all hands on deck to turn this ship homeward. I believe the call to action has been heard, but it will be curious to see how we as a nation take the dream forward. I'm grateful for all the new connections made and old ones reaffirmed. Write with y'all soon!
