I have a dream...Celebrating Out 50 Years of Jubilee!
Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.
So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities?
Today's focus in on the legacy of life. I am at the threshhold of one legacy ending and the creation of the next. In our families our elders lead us, inspire us, shape and mold us, but then there comes the time when it's necessary for them to become part of the ancestors.
The next generation now is responsible for shaping the legacy of wisdom, insights and inspiration as we now support the children. The more we do this in our families, the stronger the wisdom of our culture is because each family is serving as a learning institute of the family's heritage, similar to what we see in Jewish and other cultures.
The Black Family has been shaped inside the storms of life, slavery, bigotry, racism, inequalities, and so much more, but we now must take the lessons of the storm to the community to show the strength that was gained, the wisdom and teachings that must be shared so our youth continue to rise up powerfully in the storms they experience - and they will come.
Our ancesters from Africa knew the power of connection to the Divine, and honoring the human-ness in each other. I invite you to remember the greatness of our people, and let's have conversations that inspires us all to take action to "Heal what's hurting our Black Community."
We are powerful, and we rise!
