Sitting in the Presence of our Ancestors

In our current school systems, we are educated with a focus on linear time. But for many cultures time is not linear —we share connections with both ancestors and descendants within a constant dialogue between our past, present, and future. Our ancestors inform our paths, walk with us as we make sense of life with the wisdom of the paths they have walked before us.

Breaking the Triangle

In our cultures -- as is true of many others -- food is sacred. Coming together with others to break bread at a table is an intimate invitation and experience. That was the feeling we wanted to lead with for our Breaking the Triangle dinner event that brought together individuals from the Black and Vietnamese communities in the Bay to discuss race, identity, and solidarity over Viet-Cajun inspired food.
