The Next Wave

Julian Bond died last night.

I can’t shake this image of a wave of folks fighting for equal rights in this country. Every year, key fighters pass on. Every year, new fighters emerge.

The photo above is of W.E.B DuBois on the left holding 2-year old Julian Bond’s hand.

Bree Newsome

Clint Smith

Phillip Agnew

There are so many I could list.

Johnetta Elzie

Deray McKesson

Stacey Abrams

Who are some folks who come to mind as part of this next wave?
