Happy Juneteenth! In honor of this special weekend, we are sharing a reflection that Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews presented last year. In this presentation, he reflects on the power of Akan teaching of Sankofa and cultural aesthetics of Afrofuturism to inform the ancestral wisdom that shapes our visions of a future where Black Lives Matter. As we reflect on themes of emancipation, freedom, and liberation this weekend, may these words inspire our commitment to prophetic resistance rooted in revolutionary love.
