We need to do more than sign a pledge. To examine the ways that we contribute to racism is the task. It requires conscious awareness.

I remember working with groups of teens at the Utica Ywca in 1970 when the National YWCA had it's Black and White together campaign thoughout the country. I was charged with bringing these separate white and black groups together to unify. We did this through a celebration of music and dance which they performed. Once they started teaching each other how to dance, sing and move together barriers were broken. It was wonderful to share this experience with groups that were separated by color and brought together through music and dance.

Music is the universal language.
