“Still Trying to Overcome”

Twelve years ago I confessed the painful truth of my own racism, and examined some difficult realities of living in Birmingham through the lens of my family history. Now I want to re-examine my life and the world I live in, look at what has changed and what has stayed the same. While facing honestly my own failings and the ongoing struggle of our community, I also seek opportunities for growth and hope that we SHALL overcome some day.
