It’s OK not to be OK and always remember as lonely as you may feel, you are not alone in your struggle or journey.
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
The year 2020. A movement not a moment. A time when many of us woke up and decided to do better. As we enter 2021 and celebrate Black history month, it is time to remember those commitments we made with our black squares and to continue to learn, unlearn along with centering and amplifying Black voices.
For every MLK quote we share out of context, every performative “we care” action we take, we continue to be part of the problem. In order to be part of the solution, we first must acknowledge there is a problem and then, do better.
This is not about politics, it’s about people. It’s about history repeating itself year after year, decade after decade, century after century.
Let’s take time this month to listen. With open minds, hearts and actions.
We have been honored and blessed to have some incredible, wise, generous, passionate, talented and awesome Black leaders and storytellers sharing their stories on the people passion purpose Podcast over the years. Listen to them. Learn from them. Believe them. Follow them. Engage with them.
NOTE: All of these episodes were recorded 2018-2020 pre pandemic. Click on the graphics to listen.
Change begins with us. It is our responsibility to unravel what we’ve been taught, use our privilege and platforms to amplify Black voices and stories, stay open to learning the truth, decide to put people before politics and do our part in dismantling systemic racism. Let’s do better.
