I would highly recommend this museum to anyone visiting Charleston. Knowing the truth of our history is key to action. As Joy DeGruy so beautifully shared: First know then do. You can’t be a part of action until you educate yourself on our history. “Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues...” The longer you keep people apart the longer you can believe the lie.
Shamarr is the WHOLE REASON IM IN EDUCATION and today I got to tell him that. his picture sits on my desk in Brooklyn. I think of him so often. last time I saw him he was 3. and I burst into tears when I showed up at his work and hugged him. and he is exactly the same. a strong and beautiful light still shines in his eyes and his smile puts everything into perspective. & my heart is so so full it will probably burst open. 😭💓
