Spend 22 Minutes This Weekend Reflecting On How Far We’ve Come In The Last 6 Years!
The world is going crazy right now. We’re still in the midst of a global pandemic that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. But we’re also in the middle of one of the largest reaching and impactful prolonged protests around systemic racism and police violence brought on by the murder of George Floyd. Many black people, and other people of colour, are looking for hope that they’re not alone in this fight. Many white people are just waking up to the fact that the world isn’t anywhere near as “fair and equal” as it seemed to them.
Regardless of which camp we find ourselves in, it’s given us all a kick up the backside in terms of pursuing more; more education, more action, more questions. We’ve all probably got a list of books in our heads that we plan on reading soon, a million podcasts that we know we want to listen to, but many of us are struggling to get started.
So, to help, we’ll be posting a weekly recommendation of what you can watch to challenge, to educate, and to motive yourself to take action in your pursuit of being anti-racist. This weekend we’re recommending an episode of the podcast, Code Switch! Code Switch has a fairly extensive team behind it and you can find out more about them here.
The episode we’ve recommended is just 22 minutes long. Their other episodes are amazing as well but we wanted to point you to this specific episode because it’s about what to say in the face of an onslaught of repeated tragedy. When you feel like all the words have been used up, how do you respond? The episode is called, “A Decade of Watching Black People Die”.
So click through to the Code Switch website and listen to the episode today!
