On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, over 150 people gathered at Friends School of Minnesota for a community-wide sing along and stories from the civil rights movement with Hollis Watkins.
“Juntos hacemos possible los sueños (Together we make dreams possible)” is the motto on the Centro Memorial Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. brochure, which I picked up during my recent visit to Cuba. The words resonated with me, as I feel this motto is also a part of the Friends School of Minnesota mission.
In November, I traveled to Cuba with a group of 22 people to participate in two separate mission trips connecting the Episcopal church of Minnesota and the Episcopal church in Cuba. It was great to be back in Cuba!
Visiting artist and photographer Wing Young Huie gave a “Chalk Talk” workshop with middle school students as a part of a inter-discplinary unit in art, Spanish and humanities.
Over the next year, the Friends School of Minnesota community will be exploring and defining what we value and believe about diversity.
