  • We are so fortunate to be located in Durham, NC, a historic center of Black culture and #blackexcellence , and surrounded by the creativity of BIPOC artists. The MLK holiday is just one day out of the year, but every day I am lifted up and inspired by Durham creatives and entrepreneurs of color. 
I highly recommend following @thespaceblack , the @paulimurraycenter and @blackaugustnc , and seeking out the work of Durham's African American Quilt Circle outside of the 'gram to enjoy the range of creative talent this community offers. These organizations all need financial support to continue their programming, so maybe take this holiday as an opportunity to make a donation to groups that further the work of Dr. King towards liberation and community building. 📷 via @paulimurraycenter We are so fortunate to be located in Durham, NC, a historic center of Black culture and #blackexcellence , and surrounded by the creativity of BIPOC artists.

  • 3 of my 1st #CivilRights #Spiritual leaders. We spent the day at the Winston's home in Alabama. Instead of a man cave, Bill Winston has a #BlackHistory library at home. This is the tribe of elders that raised me. 
Representing 2 of the 7 founding families of #MLK #Community Church in #ColumbiaMD they shared stories about how the idea to begin the church was born out of a 1976 book club on #AlexHaley's Roots. The families gathered in different homes for a series of in-depth discussions about the bible as it relates to the lives of Haley's enslaved #Ancestors, led by Rev Phillip Rushing. They credit Mrs Joan Lane, for being the catalyst for our non-denominational congregation that grew out of St. John's Baptist Church. Back then, we spent more time with this cluster of neighbors than we did our own relatives. I have fond memories of the book club, Christmas and cluster gatherings & choir rehearsals.

The Winstons grew up in segregated #Alabama before bringing their 4 children up to Maryland. Next time you see footage of the #MontgomeryBusBoycott keep an eye out for Myrtis Winston walking to school as a teenager. I promise she looks exactly the same. 
Even though I'd visited the @eji_org
@MemPeaceJustice & @LegacyMuseum this summer, visiting with my spiritual elders & #MontgomeryAL natives was a tremendous day. There's a point in this place of sacred reflection where silence falls. This is holy ground; a space to listen & heal. And there is LIFE growing in the blood-soaked soil. 🌱

Once in the courtyard, Mrs Winston used the walking stick her brother made to point out things about the neighborhood before the memorial was built. Old Ship AME Zion Church towers peak over the back of the courtyard. It is the oldest black congregation in the city. We also located a familiar name to Mrs Winston on a memorial, who was the father of her school mate.

I love my people & I'm excited to get back to town soon to spend more time exploring Mr Winston's library & the other historic sites around town.
