Letters to Ourselves: A2632022 Water Epistles
WHAT IS AN EPISTLE?
In the simplest of terms, an epistle is a letter. Many of us may be familiar with the word from formal literature or religious studies. For our learning community, however, we wanted to consider the many definitions that the word "Epistle" evoked as we learned about water in Black communities locally, nationally, and globally. What emerged for us were thoughts of meaning, futures, writing, series of letters, formal letters, scribes, apostles, petitions, poems, progress, writing tools, hands, memory, caves, a long story, pasts, leaders, disciples, religion, ancient documents - ancient and current, change, prophets, history, advocate, ink, influence, and creation.
