This day means so much to me. My work has drawn from this place for many years and finally I am here. This area was freed and left to the freedman and freedwomen to inhabit since 1862 - 3 years before the Emancipation Proclamation. The land is layered with cultural heritage, honor and love. Giving respect also to the indigenous removed from this ancient land, our time here is only a small layer - so we also give honor to those layers before us. It means so much to know that this space has been held for by people who gave their labor and prayers here for so long. We honor the ancestors.
