In today’s episode, Julie and I chat with Kathleen St. Villier Hill. Kathleen is currently the director Elijah Cummings Youth Program and an advocate for youth leadership and community building in Baltimore Maryland. Our conversation today will explore the relationship between identity, relationships, and action. With everything happening right now in the America right now, we felt this was a topical conversation that would challenge educators to grapple with how our own identity impacts the way we relate to and engage with our students and each other. The importance of this reflection is a major theme in this episode, and one that Kathleen takes personally and seriously. As protests around the country continue, many people are wondering what else they can do to be an ally for marginalized people in their community. Posting on social media might be a good first step, but following that with some serious reflection about our identity, relationship to others, and action are even more important. We hope this episode provides some insight to help us on our journey.
