So many people are talking about the importance of supporting, listening to and following Black women in rural areas in this country. My name is Mamie Hillman and I’m asking you to step up. After 25 years of organizing, I have opened the Greene County African American Museum, dedicated to the empowerment of and truth-telling about African American lives in Greene County, Georgia. We are doing the work of giving hope to our young people. I invite you to invest in bring my dream to inspire generations of African Americans in rural Georgia. In 1995, I had a vision to establish a center that honors the lives and legacy of African Americans in rural Georgia and Greene County specifically – the women and men on whose shoulders we stand who gave their lives so that one day Black people would be free.
The lives of Black folk in Greene County have inspired artists and scholars for generations.
In the face of centuries of terror and repression, Black people in Greene County have risked their lives to care for one another, tell the truth about the injustice they face, and fight for the flourishing of generations to come. We need the Greene County African American Museum now to uplift the heroes of the past and inspire their descendants to envision and build a future in which all are finally free.
