My dear white friends, I hope this message (from my heart) speaks to and opens your heart in a new way. Tonight I am sharing stories from my past and introducing you to my inner circle, the black men and women who have influenced, impacted, and changed my life. It starts with educating ourselves and having empathy and trying to see the world through someone else's eyes, even when we don't know what the "right thing to say or do," is. We can still stand up for what is right, we can show love and acceptance, we can lend our voice, and we can BE THE CHANGE.
An eternal thank you to my amazing crew for your love, loyalty, kindness, generosity, and wisdom. Go follow them yall, learn their stories... let's connect and support each other as loving humans.
