In my house is a painting of one artist’s depiction of Jesus, which I bought years ago on the South Side. I give it extra attention during Holy Week and the celebration of Easter, a special day that is on a different date each year and is commercially symbolized by a giant rabbit carrying a basket of brightly colored hard-boiled eggs it hides from children. It’s a beautiful painting that’s sparked conversations and comments from people who’ve seen it because the Jesus in the painting is black. He looks like the late, great singer-songwriter Nickolas Ashford.

February is African-American Heritage Month, a time to reflect on and celebrate African-American culture and heritage. The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Created Equal project uses the power of documentary films to encourage public conversations about the changing meanings of freedom and equality in America. Locally, the San Antonio Public Library, SAPL, aims to accomplish this through hosting a variety of events, film screenings and discussions throughout the month at various branch locations.
