As a child of the 60s, I thought I had most of the answers. I lived through it. Fought for equality and against hatred & stupidity.
To the young people who might be protesting for the first time, it may not seem like we've come very far, but change has come (albeit in tiny steps). By having a voice. By not being silent.
We may think we know so much, even those of us who fought back in the 60s, and have kept fighting for human rights ever since. We, too, have a long way to go.
At Live Out Loud Coaching, I pledge a commitment to listening, learning, and eradicating racism. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
With the intention of learning and growing, I would like to share what I have found helpful in expanding my understanding of racism. Maybe you will find it helpful as well.
