This Week's Story
Jamia Wilson invokes Coretta Scott King, reminding us that struggle needs to be fought and won in every generation. It's a position of humility, endurance, and our undeniable interconnection that animate Wilson's life and work. A way to honor her ancestors, informing the legacy she's building today. A legacy, she's aware, she may not live to enjoy, but is the only way to pay tribute to the love that forged her.
To begin to understand Jamia Wilson, I realized quickly, was going to take a much wider perspective than I was accustomed to. As we sat together high up in her New York City office, I’d need every bit of that empire state of mind to travel across time to her cacophonous front porch filled with ancestors.
