Dear Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Community,

This week’s Tending Tuesday is brought to you by Dr. Fanny Brewster, author of The Racial Complex and offers a reflection in the celebration of Juneteenth.

We celebrate Juneteenth!

Declared an official United States federal holiday in 2021.  The cause of our celebration is in remembrance of those African Americans who finally received the news of the surrender of the Southern Confederate army three years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

We celebrate Juneteenth!

For all the Africanist people who could not be there on that June day in Galveston, Texas to hear the news of their liberation.  In our ancestral memory lives the love and tenderness of those who took care of us descendants so that we could live today.

We celebrate Juneteenth!

Knowing that our cultural love is strong and the consciousness that helped us survive and thrive needs to be preserved for many more to come who will follow us.

We celebrate Juneteenth!

Joyfully and with pride knowing the journey is long, the love is deep and ancestral wisdom never ends. Everything that we can imagine can become life.  Let us dream peace and imagine ourselves as love.

In Celebration,

Fanny Brewster, Ph.D., M.F.A., LP

Inside The Curious Mind

A quote that resonated with me this week…

“If the cruelties of slavery could not stop us, the opposition we now face will surely fail. Because the goal of America is freedom, abused and scorned tho’ we may be, our destiny is tied up with America’s destiny.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
