Listening on MLK Day

Listening on MLK Day January 15, 2018

I have been feeling I should post something profound today in honor of MLK, in objection to the President’s “shithole countries” remarks, and in support of human and civil rights for all. These are things I care deeply about.

As a white woman, I have learned that the one of the most profound things I can do is listen and promote the voices of those who are not heard enough. So today, I invite you to read some of the black people who inspire me with their wisdom, their strength, and their perseverance.
