My name is Lydia Dunnington. I am a 59-year-old African-American female with a passion and hope for racial reconciliation. In embracing this passion and hope, I also, by necessity, embrace the accompanying hard road of truth and reality. In so doing, I commit to do my part to complete the story of our country by shining a light on the overlooked experiences of people of color in this nation. The full story remains to be told.
