Black Lives Matter

July 12, 2021  •  1 Comment

Last week I went to Monument Ave in the heat of the day. I wasn't sure what to expect, I'd last visited in the summer of 2018 as part of a group. Back in 2018 a  local history expert was kind enough to lead us on walk to the monuments. I asked him about the statues being erected as part of the Jim Crow movement. He called me a "snowflake" and ended the conversation. Today's statue is covered with the marks of the community with the message that black lives do matter. I hope the statue comes down soon and that hate and white supremacy end. I do appreciate the social and political art.

A very interesting trip for me... the photograph depicts the division of the South that still exists ... and shouldn’t!
