Samara gets real real with the National SEED Project trainer, who facilitates the types of difficult conversations many of us have been in since the Black Lives Matter protests erupted, if not before—with allies, with potential allies, with ourselves. For non-Black listeners, she offers advice on getting it wrong and doing it anyway, on the choice between shame and love, and on what to do when you don’t know what you don’t know (and how you got that way). Plus, below is a boatload of excellent resources for the long haul.
