It is often said that a picture is worth a thousands words. Today, it remains difficult for Americans to talk about issues of race and the divisions of our nation that make us far from united states. I have conceived, captured and curated the ongoing To Walk A Mile series to convey the proof, hope and promise of community in the midst of some of the hardest things for us to talk about as Americans in the 21st century. The power of this independent project (an excerpt of which is shared here) is seeing black and white Americans in partnership with each other in their communities and workplaces throughout the U.S. These are relationships that cannot be legislated. They take work, sacrifice, courage, humility, and trust and the willingness to speak honestly while exploring a painful national history and its legacy of inequity.
