WHO

Thinking About The Ancestors

As I hold respect/honor/Gratitude for Dr. Martin Luther King’s life/contributions – I hold close to my heart a recent experience at JACK in Brooklyn during an event curated by Daniel Alexander Jones on Dec. 7th, 2013. The evening was titled: Light in the Darkness: A reflection on the Spiritual. It featured Helga Davis, Pamela Sneed, Eisa Davis, Gale Jackson, Eder J. Williams, Imani Uzuri and was hosted by Jomama Jones.
I had the honor of giving the Invocation for the evening.
Someone asked me for a written copy of my remarks.
I wanted to share them here…

In the Spirituals the Ancestors
in their profound wisdom and understanding of Spiritual technology
have left us with tools for Shining in our Lives.

The Spirituals invite us to know that multiple things can be true at the same time:
That we can stand fully in our brokenness and hope.
That we can fully express our sorrow and fight.
That even when our dreams are shattered and there is no evidence of Grace, we are never alone.

The Spirituals give us the opportunity to be in community.
To witness and be witnessed.
To remember that we are not alone.

Who are your Ancestors/known and unknown-on whose shoulders you stand?
Name them now.
Remember
You are stronger than you think you are.
It is your job to Shine.
You are Loved.
You are never alone.
