I was in 9th grade, Rev. Mashod A. Evans in 3rd grade. Such a small school, I knew almost everybody by name, including Mashod.
The years shrink the gaps that appear so looming as children but in that school, it was truly a community that felt open and unsegregated by the age barriers that are so strict in most schools.
This single post today made me feel such pride. A member of my extended family whose past is not my own carrying forth a promise denied but now fulfilled.
This is why I vote: for those who couldn’t and for those who still can’t. There are many.
I am a representative. You are a representative. Of who?
