Why the Problem Isn’t Important

I'm here at the Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington DC and there's been something on my mind the past few days that's been happening more and more in my teaching.

Do Not Forget & Live From Your Heart

Why Allyship is Essential to Change

I've had the wonderful opportunity to meet some very prominent African Americans and some prominent African Americans who participated in the Civil Rights Movement. And I've learned incredible lessons about them. And one of the most important lessons I'd learned was from a man named Hezekiah Watkins. And it was about the importance of allyship. Just to give you a little bit of background and explain to you who Hezekiah Watkins is. Hezekiah Watkins is one of [...]
