Begins a Scar Photo & Poetry Project

Dear Friends,

We hope you're spending Thanksgiving weekend in happiness and safely surrounded by your closest ones during these critical times. Perhaps this also could be a time for reflection of our bigger, human family as well.

 

Recently I was honored to be a very small part of this extraordinary exhibition, Begins A Scar, a collaboration between world renown photographer Sandro Miller and poet and recipient of Library of Congress Bobbitt Prize Patricia Smith. It confronts the issue of name calling and the scars that follow. I have been identified by some of those names but I fully realize that other peoples "names" are much more devastating and have long lasting effects on their lives.

 

Hope that those powerful photographs and overwhelming poem brings more empathy to the subject.
