There is no freedom without justice and so we marked Monday with the celebration of a man who worked for justice for all. I could not stay for the entire event which was held at the Sankofa Freedom Academy but I did get to catch some pictures of a congenial crowd of folks who came together in celebration. The Frankford Coalition of Neighbors, with a long list of volunteers, put together a great program oriented at the youth of our community.
Thanks to Jennifer Powell-Folks, Steve Blackburn, Frankford High School ROTC, Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School, Frankford Friends School, Ken’s Restaurant and Catering, Janet Bernstein, Campbell AME Church and Dr. Ayesha Imani, Diane Blum, Marie Butler, 1Sgt. Joe Fraioli, Johnnie Mae Parker, Natoya Travers, Helen Waller, Connie Whitmore, Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez, State Representative Tony Payton, Frankford Garden Club and Aria Health for a job well done.
