Duluth to Montgomery Reflections: History in Context

In the sixth episode of the “Duluth to Montgomery Reflections,” the Duluth NAACP welcomes an advocate, coordinator, and mentor from the Duluth community. Sandra Oyinloye is no stranger to facing issues of racial justice head-on, yet this trip to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice brought her into new challenges.

Oyinloye discusses how facts she had always known came into sharper relief as she walked historic grounds and visited the museum and memorial. During this time, she gives voice to a poignant question: what family did she lose? Who might have been her cousins today had the slave trade not robbed them from their homes?

This is but one of the many topics Oyinloye explores in her interview, touching on multiple elements that impact the conversations of racial justice today.

Sandra Oyinloye will also be the emcee for this year’s Freedom Fund Dinner for the Duluth NAACP.

Other episodes of “Duluth to Montgomery Reflections” can be found on the NAACP’s website or SoundCloud. New episodes are released the third Wednesday of every month.
