We can’t wait!!!

This story was told during an interview with a Black woman, a leader in her church, participating in research on race in America. It has also been shared publicly by Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth, TX, some of which is included.
This is but one act of reparation and it is in no way the totality of what is required to undo the harm caused by complicity in White supremacy or the dishonor given to Mr. Thomas in his lifetime, as well as so many others.
But it is an example of people who are doing the work of antiracism, and these kinds of memorials are not without meaning. They are public symbols, outward signs of an inward intent to acknowledge our past, confess its harm, and transform our history. They are visible expressions of a commitment to change.

If you’ve not explored Black History Month before, I encourage you to do so as a chance to open your mind and your heart to the men and women you will meet during the month. They have an uncanny knack for speaking to tired stereotypes and worn-out biases.

These people achieved and gave of themselves despite being told no Blacks allowed, despite good ‘ole boy networks that dismissed them, despite the threat of incarceration for stepping out of line.  That spirit, that tenacity, and that resilience…well, I believe that is about as American ideal as you can get. -- Tracey McKee
