How can we honor and acknowledge our own histories in relationship to other’s histories? To understand one’s self we must also understand ourselves in parallel with others, from the individual experience to the collective experience. We must expand the spectrum through which our history has been told. What would happen if we transformed our focus to one which includes the other without suppressing the difference? When the difference is understood and respected without coercion we can endeavor to resist assaults on marginalized people, their environments and the cultural heritage that they carry with them. There is a profound difference between preserving history and curating it. What stories are you being told? And through which lens are they being filtered?
