This is such a wonderful example of how a small question sparked a renewed awareness of our history. Thank you to everyone that participated in honoring Edwin Pratt and inviting his family. going forward, I hope we can all work to recognize racism in all its form and faces, and pursue individually, culturally, politically to become anti-racist.
