Support the "Resurrecting Love Project"
The “Resurrecting Love Project” has three parts:
1) the completion of our documentary film, Resurrecting Love, now in post-production. Completion of our documentary is our top priority. Rarely has the need for racial healing in the U.S. been more fraught or more elusive. Honoring the buried history of slavery that this country has denied provides a replicable model of building community that can be used throughout the U.S. .
2) continue to work with the Love Cemetery Burial Association to maintain, clean, and keep Love Cemetery accessible.
3) continue to build relationships with educational, artistic, and culturally responsive organizations, institututions, and individuals as we lay the groundwork for a national pilot project in education.
"Resurrecting Love Project" is supporting the
production of a video documentary on the struggle for Love
Cemetery and the many layers of untold stories that surround it.
You can donate online specifically to support this film project.
The life-changing, life-affirming work of Resurrecting Love in truth-telling, reconciliation and community-growing is an outgrowth of China's writing. All of her books are grounded in real-world needs that she has experienced, in places as seemingly far apart as Nepal, India, and East Texas. Her work, of course, reveals how close and how deeply connected we all actually are. Denying people access to their ancestors, especially in the African-American community, represents one of the oldest and most challenging problems in our country today - the denial of our own history. This country was built its wealth on the backs of enslaved people by stealing land from Native people and nearly exterminating them altogether. It is the shadow of this our unacknowledged history that exploding into the racial violence we find in the streets today.
