So I’m at the monthly HIVE Meetup and to spark small group conversation, I’ve been asked 1) to share the 5th photo in my phone and 2) how I felt during the moment it was captured.
A1: Clearly, this is a screenshot (which means I stole it, but that’s another post for another day).
A2: I felt rather relieved that it WASN’T a candid shot with my mouth wide open, mid-sentence and that the photographer captured my youth at the height of our learning. We’ve been having really great and complex conversations all week about the ways in which ‘God Wants Us’ and the type of servant leaders we are all called to be. @QuinnChicago
During this morning’s Meetup, one of my colleagues elected me to share out for our group. So I talked about how my motivation for sharing the photos that I post is to combat the hate that we see in the world and promote more love (interpersonal and self-love) and peace.
Maybe I’m an idealist, but I honestly believe this type of intentionality in what we choose to share on our social media platforms could have a major impact on the way people choose to perceive our city, our network, our neighborhoods, and most importantly, Black youth.
We spend so much time capturing important moments on our phones these days. What’s the fifth photo in your photo library? If you share, tag me! I’d love to see your memory!
