Legacy, Plus Wonder + Profound Partnership

If you ever find yourself in the heart of Montgomery, Alabama, do yourself a favor and make a beeline for the incredible Legacy Museum, a true testament to the vision of Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative.

Let me tell you, this museum is a masterpiece of design, seamlessly blending history with a modern perspective on race relations, incarceration, and the death penalty. It’s not just a visit; it’s an immersive journey that will leave you in awe.

As I wandered through the exhibits, I was struck by the depth of personal stories and the powerful connection between history and our present reality. The museum, which boldly Celebrates Friction and fearlessly tackles ‘hot button’ issues, truly seeks to provide diverse perspectives. It’s a thought-provoking experience that stays with you long after you’ve left its doors.

And guess what? In the midst of absorbing all this inspiration, I stumbled upon a familiar face from my work with Plus Wonder. Anthony Ray Hinton and Lester Bailey’s profound friendship, a captivating story from the Partnering book, came to life through Anthony’s video.

It hit me then – Plus Wonder is about something bigger, a movement that goes beyond boundaries and embraces missions that truly matter.

As I wrapped up my visit, I couldn’t resist exploring the thoughtfully curated gift shop. Low and behold, Jean’s work graced the shelves.

The message was clear: the way forward is together. Plus Wonder’s mission and its educator resources, including the Six Degrees of Connection Curriculum, have the power to guide students, educators, and parents toward a world that is united and inspired to take better care of each other.

Here’s to making waves of positive change together!
