Amy’s 4 Things

Be Antiracist with Ibram X. Kendi. Tell Me Something Good. be the change. Be the Bridge.

FIRST THING: New York Times bestselling author & antiracist activist, Ibram X. Kendi {@ibramxk}, talked with Amy about his new podcast that just launched called “Be Antiracist.” Ibram is all about freeing humanity from racism & we hope you enjoy today’s chat. SECOND THING: Amy shares a “Tell Me Something Good” story about a 94-year-old Alabama grandmother that got to try on a wedding dress 70 years AFTER her big day. In 1952 when she got married, black women weren’t allowed in bridal shops, so she never got to have that experience. THIRD THING: @TheShopForward has an ‘Ally Fund’ and ALL proceeds from each item are donated to organizations fighting racial injustice in all forms. As Angela Davis said, “it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist.” We will continue to listen, learn, and stand up against systemic racism. We need to be the change. FOURTH THING: A great resource for learning more is @BeTheBridge. They empower people and culture toward racial healing, equity and reconciliation.
