Everyone knows I would take a knee with Colin Kaepernick any day as a man who served 20 years & 28 days in the US Navy during war & peace! I’ll add to it my shirt I’m sporting today…

Mental health matters.  Living through a pandemic for nearly two years has taken a toll on everyone in some way. Remember, support is available and reaching out is a sign of strength. Learn more about the resources in your area at mentalhealth.gov. #WorldMentalHealthDay

Something I’ve learned in middle age: some personalities just clash 🤷🏾‍♀️.And neither person is necessarily wrong or bad. Good to realize when it happens and not make a mountain out if it. And definitely don’t try to turn others against someone just because you don’t vibe w/ them.

Fred D. Gray, 90, is legendary. His mission: “Destroying everything segregated I could find.” He was Dr. King’s attorney. His lawsuit on behalf of John Lewis & #BloodySunday marchers led to the #VRA & America’s first Black president. Join our free virtual gala to honor him.
