I love these photos by Chicago Tribune photographer John Kim that accompanied Heidi Keibler Stevens' front-page story about our Uncomfortable Journey to Montgomery, Alabama to visit The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice.
The story ran in the Trib's online version on Saturday and in the newspaper today. You can read it here.
I'm not ready yet to share my thoughts about the journey, but please keep following here and at #UncomfortableJourneyEvanston on Facebook and Twitter for the beautiful and difficult testimonies of folks who have begun to express themselves about how it moved them.
I cannot tell you what an honor and a privilege it was to take--no--BEGIN this journey with fellow Evanstonians. I'm looking forward to seeing where we it will take us next.
Thank you to Evanston Cradle to Career/Advocates4Action, Evanston Community Foundation/Leadership Evanston, and Evanston/North Shore Branch NAACP for co-sponsoring the journey and to everyone who supported it financially and in-kind.
Willie Shaw, thank you for the Black trivia questions and prizes! We had fun learning about important people, dates, and places we didn't but should know!
