Week 40: Langston Hughes - Stand for Equality in life and art

Langston Hughes - a notable poet of color is perhaps a most appropriate poet tarot card to draw at this time. The recent news of violence in cities across the country cry out for witness. Hughes tackled racial injustice in America long before the civil rights movement had steam.

I should be reflecting on how I judge the work or lifestyles of fellow artists. How I give witness in my own work.

There is much room for tolerance in this country and do I play a positive role model in this? If Not, How can I do better?

While these time are challenging - equality is a 24-7 job, 7 days a week, 12 months a year. No breaks for holidays or vacation.
