Our neighbors in DeKalb County working to remember their victims of racial terror have announced an essay contest that is going on right now! If you are attending high school or college in DeKalb, or if a friend, child, or other person close to you is, please consider submitting!
At our monthly planning meeting, we had the first of what will be a series of conversations reflecting upon the history, challenges, and motivations of our work. We listened to the words of Frederick Douglass, spoken by James Earl Jones, as he examined the meaning of the 4th of July for people of color in 1865. He wasn’t a fan, you might say.
