Protests have been sweeping across the United States and spreading around the globe, rallying cries of “Black Lives Matter.” Race and racism are a reality that so many of us grew up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can’t just be on people of color to deal with it. It’s up to all of us. Let’s start by examining ourselves and listening to those whose lives are different from our own. It ends with justice, compassion, and empathy that manifests in our lives and on our streets. I pray we all have the strength for a journey lies ahead.
Our children’s lives matter more! This book of images is to inspire youth of color to live and share their TRUTH! It is my prayer that all will continue to reach for the highest aspirations. Social justice is core to who we are as Americans. The racial inequality, violence and oppression against the Black community must stop! I am committed to doing my part. Will you? RIH George Floyd.
