It’s wonderful that our young people are engaging in our celebration of Black History. At Mass on Sunday we remembered Harriet Tubman and this week with the help of Eden, we are remembering Augusta Savage. I hope you can follow the link to Eden’s presentation above and marvel not only at the information contained, but the wonderful and clever technical presentation.
It is for us as an entire community to engage in understanding our history authentically. We cannot be selective… so I hope as we all celebrate the contribution to our world and society of different people, we might mature in our understanding of each other, and the gifts we bring in life being lived in its fullest measure and appreciation.
