We are so excited to be reading #OctaviaButler's, "Parable of the Talents", written in 1998 but so relevant for today.

Join us on the 4th Monday of this month at @hubcitywriters, 12 PM and/or 7 PM to listen and share about this powerful book!

So we leave the Children's Museum after he ran wild and had a blast, he gets into the car and says, "I haven't had much fun." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

About last night! Speaking at my alma mater alongside @mswear0322 and @hannahabonner about the real thing...priceless!

Naming everything from white supremacy to a sanitized/white-owned version of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (put some respek on that name per Rev. Bonner) πŸ˜‚

We named the need for deep listening and action from the white community as well as the need for one another, knowing that if only a few hear and come along...Those are the ones. This is our work--In different ways, with different gifts, each lighting fires to transform this world!
To hear #SandraBlands voice echo inside of that chapel...gratitude for the ancestors! They are always with us. πŸ™Œ

With all of its incompleteness or criticisms to be made, this is still #PeoplePower.

I know rockstars! The ones who aren't afraid to be themselves fully and let it light the fire in others... Gratitude for tribe. Want ideas on how to transform stigma and bias, talk to @bad.decisions_building.mats about mental health, any "ism", and marketing... A brave one.

Gratitude for all who wrestled together last night at Learning Us, reflecting on a broader message from Dr. King but focused primarily on the words of James Baldwin and facing his tough question together:

Why did #White #America need this and what did it uphold?

Watch the full James Baldwin interview here:
to.pbs.org/2ig77Vg

Assignment for the next Learning Us:
Read "The Case for Reparations" by Ta-Nahisi Coates: theatln.tc/2j2HOHh

Day 3: Dr. King was not a lone hero. He had a team. "It is essential to resist the depiction of history as the work of heroic individuals in order for people today to recognize their potential agency as a part of an ever-expanding community of struggle." --from January's Reading for Transformation book by Angela Davis, "Freedom is a Constant Struggle"
