Our Thoughts & Prayers

I speak for the Board of Directors of Voices From the Earth and for our artistic director, Ilene Evans, when I say our hearts are heavy and our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends, and community of the people who were murdered in Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. We are stunned, saddened, confused, and angered by this senseless act of violence. As an organization with a mission to promote listening, learning, respect, and thoughtfulness, we are renewed in our commitment to use story to encourage empathy and promote healing. We remember Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Cynthia Hurd, Tywanza Sanders and Rev. Clementa Pinckney,Rev. Daniel Simmons, Susie Jackson, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lance, and Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor.
