Day 2715: Shadows

Today, the United States is dealing with terrible shadows, cast by many.

Three years ago, this televised Brief History of Racism included  the poet and artist known as Sir Shadow reciting  his ode to Timothy Caughman. Timothy Caughman was a 66-year-old social worker who was stabbed to death in New York City by a 28-year-old white man who had traveled there to kill black men.

Without a shadow of a doubt, I am grateful for all who showed up here today.

  6. Some shadows are beautiful. Some are not. It’s our job to ponder both and act.

  7. Something I’ve never thought about shadows before is that when one person’s shadow joins another it shows how we share space. And that’s what we have to do: learn to share space equally with each other.
