So here we are the final episode of season one! Inspired by Barack Obama I open up about what it's like to be an anti-racist educator, black woman, and soon-to-be author in unprecedented times like these.
I delve deep into the heaviness of reliving racist trauma I talk about how we can ALL instigate change in ourselves and others without resorting to dehumanising behaviour. And I share some deeply personal stories that came to me after watching Barack Obama delivering an incredible eulogy for activist, the late John Lewis.
In the episode I also discuss:
- Remembering past trauma while concurrently experience it right now
- How we can normalise racism as a way to protect ourself from trauma
- Them-ing and us-ing and the race hierarchy we all need to be aware of and disrupt
- Anthony Walker and Joy Gardner
- Being vigilant of our own internalised racism and where racism shows up everywhere around us; the media, social media, and everyday life too.
