In Solidarity



Solidarity by Marcus Trujillo and Lee Francis 4

Executive Director’s Note: It has taken a bit of time to process all that has been happening for the past week and a half and we wanted to make sure we added out spirit and prayers to the movement and all of Creation.

Wordcraft Circle unequivocally condemns police violence and we affirm our solidarity with Black Lives Matter and all our black relatives who face violence from a system built on stolen land, stolen bodies, systemic violence and racism. We recognize the sovereignty of Black individuals and communities and their right to exist free from fear and degradation. We celebrate the beauty of Black stories and Black storytellers who have been the keepers of community wisdom, culture and traditions in the face of oppression and violence at the hands of those that have prospered from the inherent racism that pervades every aspect of American society.


But most importantly, we remember the names and stories of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and the too, too many others whose lives were ended far too soon.


But we know their stories continue.


We know Creation has allowed us to learn from them and we honor their lives and legacies and hold their stories sacred.


We hope you will take the time to hear Black storytellers, read Black authors, and continue to honor the stories and legacies of Black Lives.

You can donate to National Black Storytellers Association [https://www.nabsinc.org] or The Chicago Black Storytellers Association [http://aseblackstorytellers.org/index.html] or many of the local Black Live Matter organizations.


Remember their names, tell their stories.


In solidarity!
