In 1925, Langston Hughes published the poem “I, Too, Sing America,” eloquently putting into words the yearning for equality by many people who are black. While many things have changed, inequalities abound. For black and brown communities the realities of these inequalities must be juxtaposed with the strength, beauty, and brilliance of their culture. How does one navigate such a society? How does one instill hope for brighter tomo...

Racism is insidious, and its impact can be deadly for people of color, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Contributing to this demise is the stress that comes from the daily mental maneuvers of dealing with racism and the plethora of health related disparities in the black and brown communities. The strain of racism can kill the soul, but healing is possible.

The idea of dismantling racism can be overwhelming and complicated. The sudden attention to the topic in 2020 stopped some people in their tracks.

Race is a social construct and is not real. Yet, we place so much emphasis on it. From filling out forms at the doctor's office to completing the census and more, we ask people to check off the box that indicates their racial identity. Though there is an "other" box, it does little to accurately describe those who are biracial. They often have to pick a side not only on such forms but in life as well.

During a speech at Harvard University in 1982, black lesbian poet Audre Lorde said, “If I didn’t define myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive." Her words are chilling, powerful, and wise. Far too many people live under the constraints and expectations of others, particularly when their very life and livelihood depend on it as it does for many Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) in...

The noted author and advocate for racial justice, James Baldwin, said that "We are trapped in our history, and our history is trapped in us."

Many of us carry around narratives that are based on our collective racial consciousness and our individual experiences. We make meaning of who we are and who we believe others to be based on these experiences. It is often difficult to shift these narratives, particularly when our expe...
