Love is the word that immediately comes to mind when I think of the years I’ve spent growing with the Brotherhood/Sister Sol. It is an ever-present love felt through the mentorship and support of its staff. It is a transformative love experienced through the guided discovery and recovery of the rich, global legacy of Black, Brown and Indigenous peoples. From the first day I walked through the Brownstone’s brightly painted door, I’ve known the embrace of this love. It is a deep and permeating love of self and of community. And it is a love to which I will always return.
