Charity Mason, our Grandfather Ellsworth Jackson’s Grandmother

I want to thank  Mr. Lonnie Bunch and the Smithsonian for the amazing cultural revival and historic celebration held on September 24th, 2016. I am still “full” from experiencing this powerfully enriching experience that was had not only with my son,  but with those that eagerly traveled the globe converging on The National Mall to commemorate this soul stirring event of opening of The National Museum of African American History and Culture. But let me share the remarkable moment had that day which really caught me and son, Michael by surprise! First was the gift of 2 admission passes from  a stranger who didn’t wish to stand in line-this timely gift rewarded us with no wait time in line and second was our seeing a photo of my beloved grand father’s (Ellsworth Jackson’s) grandmother Charity Mason. There she was on display inside the museum. It’s like seeing a friend in a public venue unexpectedly! Not sure who contributed our Grandma’s photo but I am thrilled they did!! My heart burst with joy, I am sure I kept repeating that was our grandmother and then I immediately phoned my mother to share the joyful news! This moment confirmed for me that we all are contributors in shaping America’s history. Thank you again Mr. Bunch and all those that created this amazing sacred space to share our truths and triumphs!!! It was a splendid day, Lord we thank You !!

Shared with a Transparent Heart,
