This image is of Peggy (R), then a 19 year-old SNCC member, next to future civil rights icon, Dr. Dorothy Cotton (L), after a 1962 church burning in Georgia—the state that Peggy's great-great grandparents, William & Ellen Craft, famously escaped from slavery nearly 115 years earlier...

REFLECTION ON THE TULSA RALLY...
Dr. Dorothy Cotton
He is NOT the one!
He is NOT ours.
He does NOT belong to us or with us.
He is NOT for us.
And never will be.
We are NOT deceived by his words.
We reject his deeds.
His minions are diminishing.
He is less than and will NEVER be enough.
His time is running OUT...
He is a subtraction.
a minus sign.
He is decline and decay.
We are renewal and r.e.b.i.r.t.h.!
Our time is NOW.
We march towards the Beloved Community...
yet and still in the distance, we know he hears...
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
