THE BURDEN goes Underground: The museum signing

CINCINNATI – If you haven’t visited the National Underground Railroad Museum and Freedom Center, put it on your calendar now. I went to present “The Burden,” but I was moved by just being in that space. It is heartbreakingly real in its curation and beautiful in its imagery. And the conversations were amazing and included comments from a woman from rural Ohio who came alone, because she couldn’t convince her husband to come, and talked about driving past a little place called Colored Town and not knowing what it meant. She wants the world to be better. She wants America to be better. She’s interested in us finally talking to each other to get past America’s worst chapter post founding. I can’t wait for the next conversation, and I can’t wait to return to the center.
