I am so honored to have been invited to join Action for a Better Tomorrow for Everyone group on Wednesday, August 9 to talk about my journey of anti-racism, the joys and hardships, the back steps and forward steps. I we had an open and honest discussion that allows us to find out where we're at personally, and what we can do next. Below is the link to ask me about doing a similar event for you, since this one has passed. However, the intellectual and emotional labor of the Black women who taught me nearly everything I know cost them personally quite a bit. Please support Black women doing liberation work now as part of my presentation.

Mainstream media is usually run by white people. It can be hard for Black women to get jobs as journalists, even when they are very talented writers and deserve those jobs. We can help mitigate the effects of racism on journalism by supporting Black women writers on Patreon.
