You have heard the saying, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Well, it’s exactly what I said when I saw the photo of Taylor Hall in the Indianapolis Star standing on a car, holding a megaphone, and rallying the crowd. I was taken back to a photo I had seen of her grandfather, Rev. Dr. Kent Millard, from his days marching with Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Clearly, the passion and desire to share in the transformation of the world to a place that is welcoming and free for all people is a passion and cause that lives from generation to generation.
We continue our conversation on “Race Matters” this weekend with a conversation with Taylor Hall. Taylor is a student at Ball State who will soon graduate with a degree in communications. She has been devoting her summer to finding ways to open up the dialogue about race and racism in Indianapolis. She does so following in the footsteps of her Grandfather Rev. Dr. Kent Millard who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Join us for part 2 of the series “Race Matters” on Sundays, July 5.
