On MLK Jr Day we are reminded of the leadership and organizing power that the Black church once had. Today it seems embroiled in scandal and political compromise. Our current events discussion led us to the death of Bishop Eddie Long and the impact religion continues to have on politics, the powerful scene on Black-ish, and Trump's latest Scandal. Our discussion went many ways, but we settled on talking about hidden figures. Both the movie, and the countless people of color who have fought for, loved on, and advanced this country with little to know acknowledgement, or out right denial or burial of the truth. Those of us who have been hidden, refuse to remain hidden any longer.
