LENT. Day 7.
Learn about Black History.
If you have never actually personally listened to or watched MLK Jr’s I have a dream speech, do it. Read about him until you could tell his story – find something you never knew about him before. Read about him like you had to be ready to answer a child’s unending line of questioning.
But furthermore, challenge yourself to find stories of heroes whose names you had never even heard before.
Ask your black friends who their heroes are.
Then learn about them.
And THEN, tell their stories to other people.
Talk about the excellence you encountered when you learned.
(Come back and share with me, too!)
