Wakulla Weekend of #MLK & Community - I Have A Dream Celebration- Inciting Insight



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

January 16, the great MLK Jr. was celebrated and remembered across our nation. Martin Luther King Jr was celebrated in BB's home town Crawfordville, Wakulla County too, but here we believe in doing it with style, relevance, and heart.  No son tan over the top or loud as Babushka's Miami, but the passion is just as strong. One day is not enough, so the celebraciones started Friday con musica and culminated in community reminiscing, union, and hope for the futuro.

The schedule, the place, the sponsors, one of the many questions asked.


The theme this year was "Inciting Insight" and the speakers eloquently shared their stories.
We are all called to be difference makers. ~Eddie Metcalf  Educator
It's community- it's on us.~Simeon Nelson   Educator on Wakulla history and on values
There isn't much that separates us if we don't allow it to.~Chuck Hobbs Lawyer

The sharing of  Andrea Carter and her senior year of highschool, when desgregation became a reality, was a sudden realization of truth.  It wasn't a story just to be read in history books, it happened, to real people;  it made a difference, they made a difference. Things weren't perfect by any means, but a start had been made. Now it was up to nosotros to continue the charla and the change.

Ahora, if you thought it was all seriousness, JU SO FONII!!! Would Babushka permitir eso?  Habia comida, comic moments, y raffles.

Prizes won by Babushka, looking forward to reading and sharing with The Grands.


When BB says Wakulla has style she means it has an essence, and here the essence is our community, our history.  Generations of families have been born and raised here and we're proud of that. There is a feeling of community which one can sense and see.  It's the bond that makes it home.
