“Bryan Stevenson Builds Museum that Confronts Slavery, Lynching, Segregation, and Mass Incarceration in America”


Charlie Rose: Bryan Stevenson

 

I applaud Attorney and Activist Bryan Stevenson for his vision to build a museum that under one roof, will educate visitors about the history of inhumane acts inflicted upon Africans and African Americas under the institution of slavery, by mob lynching, Throughout the Civil Rights Movement, and the injustices of schools to prison pipelines, and mass incarceration of black males.

Stevenson uses his professional platform and influence to advocate for a more humane and just society. His activism in the courtroom and as a citizen of this country, is reflective of the heart and insight of men who came before him. Men like Gahndi, Mandela, Malcolm X,  and Martin Luther King Jr. who advocated for racial equality.

I  too have similar, though not as grand ambitions, and I am inspired by the work Mr. Stevenson is doing.

While the work that I am doing is not in any way associated with Mr. Stevenson’s building of his museum,  in 2012 I began painting a collection of art that is dedicated to the memory of women and girls who were lynched on America’s soil.

The art is abstract in the sense that it was not created with the intention of projecting any likeness to any of the women or girls for which the collection is dedicated.

Checkout the site below, especially if conducting research  on lynching or if you are in need of  footage for a class presentation.

Dylan Storm Roof A Plea of “Mercy” by Terri Mae Owens


“You Cannot Change the World By Doing What’s Convenient or Comfortable”

Bryan Stevenson

One Plea of “Mercy” for Dylan Storm Roof

When I read that the death penalty is being sought against Dylan Storm Roof, for the murders of the nine men and women whom he shot to death in Mother Emmanuel A. M. E. Church, a year ago this month, I felt a sense of sadness and remorse. My sadness however was not felt only for Dylan’s fate, but for the fate of race relations in a country that as Americans we love.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2016/05/24/dylann-roof-death-penalty-justice-department/84871618/

As much as we mourn the loss of lives that were taken in such a horrifically insane manner, taking the life of Dylan Roof, will not bring any one of them back.  In fact, to issue the death penalty would be expressive of the same barbaric disregard for human life that he showed towards parishioners who expressed only kindness towards him.

The deaths of the nine men and women of Emanuel grieved this entire nation, as well as people around the world. We here in South Carolina are presented with a great opportunity to continue the legacy of the Charleston Nine by not just professing to be a humane society, but by actually showing that we are.

I am an African American woman, a mother and a grandmother whose hope it is for a more kinder and just society for people of all races and ethnicities.  I am hopeful that one day skin color and religious belief or practice will not continue to divide us.

There is no question that what Mr. Roof did was wrong. However, as terrible of a thing that he has done, he is a member of a community of citizens called Americans. As Americans, we are connected by a shared history, and that history is in part founded upon the branding of the flesh of human beings to document them as property, as inventory, and not as people.

Because Mr. Roof grew up in a country whose foundation was built upon a blatant disrespect of human life, it seems ironic that a country whose history was established upon laws that made it legal to commit cruel and inhumane acts against human beings including children, for financial gain, would establish laws that would sentence an individual to die in a most inhumane manner because he committed a cruel and inhumane act against humans beings. The message that this type of reasoning sends is at its worst hypocritical, and at best conflicting.

Our forefathers owned human beings, and yet they established laws to govern our nation.  Laws that children are taught did not recognize African Americans as human beings, and certainly not equal to whites. It took a civil war just to grant them freedom and document their humanity.

Collectively as a people and a nation, we have journeyed to this point in our country’s history where a 21-year-old white male entered a church and assassinated nine people. The result of racism.  Racism was described by Toni Morrison, during an interview with Charlie Rose, as “Bereft.”

“The people who do this thing, who practice racism are bereft, there is something distorted about the psyche. It is a huge waste and it is a corruption and a distortion. It’s like it is a profound neurosis that nobody examines for what it is. It feels crazy, it is crazy, and it has as much of a deleterious effect on white people and possibly equal as it has on black people.” 

What has being a nation of people, whose history of race relations in this country, as exhibited through the Civil Rights movement, produced? It has produced confused citizens like Dylan Roof. How can we as a country not take responsibility for his brokenness and for ours? Laws punish, but they also protect. Dylan clearly shows signs of mental illness.

Dylan is one of America’s sons and we have failed him.  We are products of a history based on treating people like the “Other” and like they do not belong here in the United States of America, a country built by the free labor of slaves.

We must admit that we have, and in many cases continue to set bad examples of what a humane country looks like.  Our country’s stance on race was aired on television for all to see.  During the Civil Rights Movement African American men, women and children marched with signs in hand that read “I am a Man” “I am Somebody” “We Shall Not Be Moved” and were attacked by German Shepherd dogs, beaten with clubs, and sprayed with water from fire hoses, while Jim Crow Laws segregated even water fountains.

This is an opportunity for our country to begin doing a better job of teaching that what happened to African Americans and Native Americans in this country was wrong and that it should never be replicated, and when blatant acts of racism occur we must denounce them.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/thank-you-trump-for-exposing-your-ugly-inner-self/2016/10/02/e7051490-8745-11e6-92c2-14b64f3d453f_story.html?utm_term=.34a98387d62a

We can change race relations in this country by teaching America’s children to respect diversity, and to see all people first and foremost as human beings.

http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/teachers-aide-fired-after-calling-michelle-obama-a-gorilla-w443276

Yes, justice must be served against Dylan, but let’s not forget our history. A history that included the horror of lynching a human being and then setting the corpse on fire while children were in attendance having a picnic with their parents.

https://books.google.com/books?id=O3ZldmMty7UC&pg=PA23&lpg=PA23&dq=lynching+african+americans+and+black+barbecues&source=bl&ots=p9gsYunGAG&sig=5unrle7LIgVNElhNRBfIju5VuJI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjUq_zO0cXPAhXB7B4KHTQNDxAQ6AEIKjAC#v=onepage&q=lynching%20african%20americans%20and%20black%20barbecues&f=false/10/6/16

Dylan deserves to pay for his crimes, but must we kill him as if exterminating him is going to heal race relations in this country? It is my plea that Dylan Storm Roof not receive the death penalty, and that this country cease to use it as a method of punishment for crimes committed until America’s judicial system puts itself on trial for the enforcement of unjust laws that destroys people lives.

http://www.bayareadefenseattorney.com/criminal-defense-lawyer/aclu-strong-opposition-three-strikes-rule  10/6/16

Capital punishment is immoral, and making an example of Dylan by sentencing him to death by the cruelest method of punishment imaginable will not deter repeated behavior of the same from happening.

Dylan Storm Roof and the Death Penaltyby Terri Mae Owens


I was happy to read that Dylan Roof’s attorney’s advised him to waive a jury trial.

“Pursuant to this order, the defendant hereby states that he is willing to waive jury, and to be tried and sentenced by the court,” the notice filed by Roof’s lawyers, David Bruck and Michael O’Connell, said.

http://christiandaily.com/article/suspect-of-charleston-church-shooting-waives-his-right-to-a-jury-trial/53094.htm

It is my hope for Dylan, as it is for young African American boys and men in general who are ushered through our judicial and court systems that America’s governments take their share of responsibility for them being there in the first place, and hold themselves accountable for sentencing, reflective of society’s influence in regards to the acts of the accused.

Let Dylan’s fate lie upon the conscious of America’s political and judicial systems. Let the American people and people around the world see the level of responsibility we as a nation who stands united take for the racist acts being acted out in our country by American citizens.

Their has to be a solution, other than that of extermination of human beings, as though they were common pests, spraying over the problem is useless, because like roaches, they will come back if the problem of infestation is not eliminated at the root of the problem.

More than a jury’s verdict, people who may or may not be versed in the facts of the social and political history of this country, and realize it’s relevance to this case in way that they can judge the affects of its its influence upon American citizens, I want to hear the verdict of a judge.

I want the verdict to be one that is precedent for this judge, whom I hope will take this tragedy as an opportunity to sets an example that what happened to the nine people in Emanuel was unjust and should never happen by showing compassion for someone who is obviously in need of psychological help.

I want his decision to propel our country in the direction of providing care for the mentally ill, ending the death penalty in this country, and I would like to see as a result of this terrible tragedy, our state and federal governments and its administrations be held accountable, by the American people for the influence American History, as taught to America’s children, in America’s schools, have on our youth.

The real threat of terrorism to America comes from within our borders not outside of it.  We are our greatest enemy, and it is reflective in our laws, and in the way that we treat our fellow man.  It is reflective in how we show compassion, love and tolerance towards each other on a daily basis, not only after a mass murder takes place.

It is a choice that we all can make on purpose each and every day that we are blessed to be awakened with breath in our bodies, and a choice to make in spite of the way others view you, or treat you.

I find opportunities to feel happiness by engaging in different activities.  My favorite thing to do is to paint art that I dedicate to the memory of women and girls who were lynched in America.

Painting art for that purpose might seem depressing to many, but the act of painting art is my daily prayer of thanksgiving to God for the many gifts and talents that he has blessed me with.

Painting art is also my personal prayer of condolence for each woman who died under unjust and inhumane conditions, as the result of being lynched.

Their lives had purpose and meaning.  I use color to celebrate their lives!

In addition to painting, I Blog. I love conducting research and writing.  It makes me happy when I find information, especially of a historic content that I can share with others.

 This Blog is dedicated to finding, experiencing, and sharing happiness.  It includes happy music, inspirational quotes, pictures that express happiness, The authenticity of Serena Williams, and a great article by Anna Quindlen!

Have a Happy Day!

Congratulations Serena!

You are a Class Act
