Saburah El-Amin is the co-founder, backbone, and lead community organizer for the SHARE Center in Lexington, KY. Her experience and activism in the Central Kentucky community has spanned more than two decades.

Narrative from original post:

Saburah: “It’s not just COVID killing us, not just policemen killing us … It’s been going on since the beginning. And you now have #45 creating more divisions. But it’s not only #45. America itself is a racist country. The forefathers instilled racism in their children and they instilled it in theirs.

I think the Black Lives Matter movement is a good thing. But I am not going out to protest. I am going to stay in my own neighborhood and take care of people there. Until African Americans start taking care of African Americans things won’t get better.”

Lexington in the Time of COVID-19 is an artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.
