I hope you’re having a great February!
Last week Sunday I made the decision to switch from regular programming — Tim Ferriss book and James Clear quotes — and instead dedicate the rest of February to Black authors sharing stories on the Black experience.
The first book I sunk my teeth into was So You Want To Talk About Race
by Ijeoma Oluo
. I’ve had many conversations about race through the years, with some being nearly accompanied by fisticuffs and most being deeply uncomfortable. Reading this book has helped me feel confident and seen, having me feel confident that my next encounter will be educational, if at least not overly emotional.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to deepen their understanding on race and what it means to be an ally.
If you have any questions or want to discuss something in the book above, give me a shout and let’s get to chatting — we only improve our understanding by welcoming discussion. In the meantime, I’ll be reading “Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race”
by British author Reni Eddo-Lodge
, it’s sure to be interesting.
See you next week 👋🏽 Be You, Be Great!
