We are inspired by this artwork by Danielle Mastrion. A New York City artist who decided to pay homage to Breonna Taylor in a New York mural. The artwork reflects the face of Harriet Tubman and Gianna Floyd, (daughter of George Floyd) and Breonna Taylor.

“Mastrion said the mural is supposed to represent the “past, present and future,” which is part of the meaning of “Sankofa,” an Akan tribe in Ghana.”
The Sankofa symbol means “Go back and get it” in the Twi language of Ghana. Mastrion wanted to ensure that the legacy of Breonna Taylor was not forgotten. When Gionna Floyd said “My daddy changed the world” - Mastrion was inspired to look to the future, and highlights that “The mural shows Gianna Floyd being “birthed” from the movements of the women before her.”
Today this mural reminds us that our feelings are real. Our feelings are valid. When we allow ourselves to feel, Not only can we continue to heal, we can respond with awareness and move forward in the face of adversity; courageously. We are reminded that we are alive, and we are free. Sankofa also teaches us that when we look back, we affirm that the ancestors have our back today and as we look forward.🖤🙏🏿🖤

Reflecting on the words of our beloved Ekua Walcott - previous and committed Director of HTCO, Advocate, Community Builder and mother to the local Black African Diasporic Community here in Toronto. “There’s not only echoes, there is entrenched anti-black discrimination at the foundation of every institution in this country.”
Ekua Walcott transitioned into the ancestral realm in 2017. As young leaders of this organization today, we miss her. We are reflective of her wisdom as we navigate these challenging and painful times and our “unhealed wounds” as Black African people. We hear her whispering to “remember who we are” - not who we are “labelled” but to discover or remember our true indigenous selves. This gives us power to advocate for ourselves and community, also to strategize and demolish oppression in our own ways and also collectively with allies to deconstruct institutionalized white privilege. Anti-Black racism is apart of an old intersectional and multilayered system that is deeply embedded in the fabric of our society. We are freedom fighters, but first we have to free ourselves...knowledge of true self is the first step to emancipation. “Slavery’s imprint is far from faded”...The Underground Railroad continues...WE ALL have work to do.
This is a clip of Ekua’s interview with City News, during the Ontario Emancipation Day: Underground Freedom Train Ride.✊🏿

📷 "The Teacher and Protector" by Autumn Beals, portrait of Ekua Walcott.

Andria "Ekua" Walcott (1962-2017) was a social worker and deeply motivated community advocate who worked at the Harriet Tubman Community Organization, serving as its Executive Director for the last 10+ years of her life. Opened in 1972, Harriet Tubman Community Organization is a non-profit youth centre dedicated to helping Black youth in Canada develop a sense of belonging and connection to their heritage and community.

Beals used nature to represent Walcott’s work, particularly how it fostered growth and development within the Black community. Blue delphiniums represent the youth she worked with; the bouvardia double flowers suggest the encouragement and enthusiasm she fostered through community engagement; and the pink hyacinth speaks to her playful spirit. Beals also included African floral motifs to represent Walcott’s love and interest for African culture.

Children’s books can play a vital role in helping kids identify racial inequality and injustice and more importantly, to speak out against it and take action to make change happen. We continue to learn from anti-racist educators and organizations like The Conscious Kid, and locally the Harriet Tubman Community Organization, A Different Booklist and The Festival of Literary Diversity. We are actively listening.
Find the good. It’s all around you. Find it, showcase it and you’ll start believing in it.
