The expansion of the movement to fight racism has just only begun for some. In order for us to make progress, we must normalize the concept of changing our opinions when presented with alternate credible information. As a Black woman, the information that is now being spoken of so publicly has always been second nature to me. This isn’t new for us. This is our everyday life—the separate set of rules that apply to us, that we live by day to day. The profiling, discrimination, disproportionate access to resources. What is happening right now is not a race war, but a call to action to unite and to come together with our communities and actively seek absolute, necessary change. Equality in every which way.
There is a lot of work to be done. And it must be enduring. This is not a moment, it’s a movement.
“Our true greatness lies in our determination to see our common cause, join hands and move forward together.” —Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II
