Dear Evanston talks Uncomfortable Journey at Evanston Live!
Join Mandy Bee Eason, Jevoid Simmons, Jane Grover, and me on Saturday night, November 16 for Etown Live at the American Legion Post 42 - Evanston.
We'll be sharing our thoughts and experiences from Dear Evanston's Uncomfortable Journey to Montgomery, Alabama to visit The Legacy Museum: from Enslavement to Incarceration and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice.
Thank you, Tammy Job, for the invitation. We look forward to sharing our experiences and encouraging others to make the pilgrimage as well.
Thank goodness for Bryan Stevenson, who founded the museum and memorial!
Over the past couple of days, since Trump claimed he was being "lynched" by the Democrats (and yes, Biden said it too a few years ago), news outlets across the country have depended on the information at the Museum and the existence of the memorial to more than 4,400 lynching victims to loudly decry this offensive misuse of the word.

PS: We're reading Bryan Stevenson's book "Just Mercy" for the next DE Racial Justice Book Group, which happens on Tuesday, December 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. If you're interested, please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get on our mailing list and join the FB group too! Limited to people who live, work, play, or pray in Evanston.
