Love Note: Black Privilege

Hello Dear First U-

Many people are asking about how to engage in activities that would contribute to the BLM efforts to end racial injustice.  To meaningfully contribute and be allied in these efforts we are called first to develop an understanding of the experience of people of color.  While we are impassioned to DO something, this process must have a foundation built on compassion, understanding, and empathy born of listening.

Today’s love note, therefore, and those to come in the next week, will offer us the opportunity to hear the narratives and commentary of people of color.  The message today is a powerful poem by Crystal Valentine entitled “Black Privilege.”

Be safe and well,
