• Jonathan Daniels is a wonderful choice for the National Cathedral’s Human Rights Porch. However, he is not an “unsung” hero of the Civil Rights Movement to those who’ve been paying attention. Aside from news reports of the day, Jonathan is memorialized in a Civil Rights icon commissioned by the Episcopal Divinity School. I have a print of it over my home altar. Likewise, a set of statues depicting Jesus and his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane are set on a pilgrim path in the woods outside of the Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, Ky. Those of us who remember Jonathan’s sacrifice are grateful he is receiving wider recognition, because his example is edifying for all.
