Today’s word is study. My life’s journey is now learning and studying the history of our country being founded on racism.
My guide is Myisha T Hill of Check Your Privilege. You can find her on FaceBook and Instagram. She also provides (for as low as $5 a month) a co-conspirator’s lounge, an invaluable resource for support and learning. Check out her posts and conversations. (If you want to join the lounge go to https://cyp.podia.com.)
I am currently reading “”So you want to talk about race” by Ijeoma Oluo. It is easy to read, meaning it is not a college manual. Many things can be very uncomfortable to read. But I love what Myisha says. If when reading or in a conversation and you feel uncomfortable. Pause and reflect about why does this make you uncomfortable.
And this months topic is Lean into Discomfort (I did not know this when I was writing the above.)
