THE BURDEN IN WEST BLOOMFIELD, MICHIGAN

If you ever need affirmation that the fight for social justice will continue, just watch YWPs – young people working. I was honored to present “The Burden” to folks in West Bloomfield, a suburb of Detroit, where I once lived and where my daughter graduated high school. I was invited by the West Bloomfield High School’s African American Awareness Club (Triple A), and they were awesome! The students brought together residents from across the city for an open dialogue about race, a conversation that is so needed and not so frightening, once you actually begin to talk. We can do this!
