How to use uplift in a sentence?

  1. Clement Alexander Price:

    “We are drawn to the Harlem Renaissance because of the hope for black uplift and interracial interaction and empathy that it embodied and because there is a certain element of romanticism associated with the era’s creativity, its seemingly larger-than-life heroes and heroines, and its most brilliantly lit terrain, Harlem, USA.”

  2. Molly Stapelman:

    What I really found most with these talents, with talents like Rebekah, is the capability to be a leader, to form even a temporary community, i’m always very touched to see her photographs with children, with people with amputations, with any kind of disability. She has a capability to uplift, to refuel them with a confidence and hope and optimism.

  3. Petra Nemcova:

    Every day or every two days, I ’m in a different country, different city, i ’m very busy, but everything is meaningful. Because with each trip, I am able to create and co-create with others and help provide opportunities for children to have a better, brighter future. That’s what keeps me going. My friends always say, ‘ you’re crazy ’ or ‘ how can you travel like this ? ’ But just knowing that you are making a difference, that you’re able to uplift the lives of children and their whole families ? That gives you energy to go on.

    People liked what it stood for, what it meant, we weren't just changing it from Confederate because it was too long or too cumbersome or old-fashioned.
