On Choosing Beauty, Joy as Resistance, and Sacred Truth-Telling
Macky Alston serves as VP of Prophetic and Creative Leadership at Auburn Seminary.
He was a senior at Columbia University in NYC when he attended one of the first meetings of ACT UP in 1987. Our conversation explores how Macky found life and celebration in the midst of death, as the AIDS crisis raged through his community, and the world. We talk about the practice of surrounding yourself with beauty, joy as an act of resistance, and truth-telling as sacred work.
