Cicely Tyson - Rest in Peace

Remembering with deep appreciation the opportunity to meet and be influenced by famed actress Cicely Tyson.  Among  her many quotes of wisdom and inspiration . . . 

"The long hard road to success in any profession is an arduous journey where the weak and the less determined find themselves on the wayside."

May she rest in peace.  (photo courtesy of Ella Coleman).

Black History Quote Posted 1-21-2021

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Black History Quote - Wednesday, January 20, 2021

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Whatever You Do, Just Keep Moving


  • Thanks to our friend Judy for sharing this photo and to the photo owner, whom we will acknowledge if he or she will contact us. 

Our slow and steady, long overdue progress, often difficult to focus upon during times of social unrest; is one of the likely excuses, though not an acceptable explanation, for the violent extremism our country is experiencing.  Stay in faith, and continue to pursue our God-given and constitutional rights, knowing that YES WE CAN!

"We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice."

–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” Speech given at the National Cathedral, March 31, 1968.

Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses, and YES US!


YES, "bring us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."  But include descendants of those who were here before the Pilgrims; and descendants of those arriving in shackles to help build and cultivate "a more perfect Union."
