It is difficult, looking back and seeing all the horrible things we have done as a society when it comes to the mistreatment of African Americans and other racial minorities. It is especially difficult when you want to showcase the diversity of your town in decades past, only to realize after looking and searching for something, there just isn't much there because we are in the south and as much as it infuriates me, I still see lots of confederate flags on people's cars and houses. BUT, even though we can't change the past, we can change what is happening now and be proactive about not only including marginalized populations but actively reaching out and having programming that highlights these groups.
