The walk to the church was needed because my back was aching and could use a good stretch. i figured the walk would take longer than my walk actually did and arrived at the church early. To my surprise there was people eating and talking, networking with the End Racism Committee who hosted the spread of food, drinks and deserts.i had green salad topped with a wonderful lentil bean and ginger salad, some lemonade, cake and fruit salad before we made our way to the viewing of Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story directed by NC Heikin, who happened to be in town celebrating her Philadelphia High School for Girls class reunion.
i hear stories of Martha Vineyards and what Cooney Island use to be. How people of color owned business and were really living a good and decent life. In Sound of Redemption: The Franks Morgan Story we get a glimpse of the short lived people of color owned lifestyles that i often wonder about. The people of color businesses in my community faded away for various reasons, but i was sure we had communities where we own and operate is what i thought until i started learning on facebook of how successful people of color communities are destroyed due to delusional white mentality.8 Successful and Aspiring Black Communities Destroyed by White Neighbors
