“George Fox, the Valiant Sixty . . . Whoever your favorite Quaker hero is, [they] did not do this work so it could die along bloodlines,” says Rashid Darden, who serves as the associate secretary for communications and outreach at Friends General Conference.
“It’s supposed to continue. The revelation is supposed to continue through bodies, through living people who can then tell others.” Rashid also shared about his own journey in Quakerism: “despite it being a predominantly White faith community, I’m still able to show up as my entire self and not be penalized for it or punished for it—and, in fact, to be celebrated.”
