Re-knowing

February is Black History Month, which as an African American, always has special meaning for me. My heritage is an integral part of who I am and how I interact in the world. It is not, however, the only part.

Sometimes in our work with students I think we depend too much on readily defined categories and miss out on the incredible richness and complexity each of us offers. We are each an amalgam of many talents, experiences, perspectives, histories, and dreams, and to fully realize a shared community together, we must see and value the whole of who we each are.

As we celebrate this month of remembrance, I challenge us all to re-know each other anew and look deeper for all that we have to share. You might be surprised to see the many gifts others bring to the table.
