The conversation around racial identity matters now as never before, yet it’s fraught with confusions and partial truths. Many people who want to be on the right side of history are puzzled and all too often muzzled. I’m for taking a more expansive view that embraces human complexity and accepts people where they are while challenging them to grow.
My intended audience is Americans who identify as white. You come to the conversation to do good by your team, organization, and society. I want you to walk away with greater resilience for every challenge life brings. This is your life, your story. Forget about being a rescuer, victim, or persecutor. It’s time to be heroes, together, stretching ourselves for the benefit of all of us. Here are resources to support you.
