Racism is a profound deviation from the standard of true morality. It deprives a portion of humanity of the opportunity to cultivate and express the full range of their capability and to live a meaningful and flourishing life, while blighting the progress of the rest of humankind. It cannot be rooted out by contest and conflict. It must be supplanted by the establishment of just relationships among individuals, communities, and institutions of society that will uplift all and will not designate anyone as “other”. The change required is not merely social and economic, but above all moral and spiritual.

The Places

Confederate Currency: The Color of Money is a collection of 300 paintings by artist John W. Jones. Drawn from the money notes of nineteenth-century America, these paintings consider the inextricable relationship between the enslavement of Africans and the foundation of American economic power.

Partners in Racial Justice has worked with Jones to bring his work to galleries in Florida and Georgia, and continues to promote this message nationwide. 

If you desire with all your heart, friendship with every race on earth, your thought, spiritual and positive, will spread; it will become the desire of others, growing stronger and stronger, until it reaches the minds of all men.
