This week's newsletter is coming to you on the last day of February, the month dedicated to Black history.
While BHM may have come to an end, our journey has not. We continue to have a very long journey ahead and we need everyone present, alert, and engaged.
This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for me.
Ahmaud Arbery killers were convicted of hate crimes.
Ketanji Brown Jackson is the first African American woman to be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The 3 police officers who stood by and watched George Floyd’s murder were found guilty of federal charges and still face criminal state charges.
And just, as I was trying to get my equilibrium under control Russia, invaded Ukraine. Keep the people of Ukraine lifted in your hearts as anyone under attack anywhere can be felt everywhere.
These are rapidly changing times and for those of us who desire to live in a fair, equitable, and peaceful world we must recognize that we cannot be passive and unengaged in healing humanity.
Challenge yourself to remain present and engaged. Get Connected. Continue to educate yourself about Black history not just in February. Let the thirst for knowledge and truth become a part of who you are and how you show up in the world.
There is so much work to be done and we must do it together.
