Surviving systemic racism and all of its reaches as BIPOC is taxing for many reasons. The inequities that these harmful ideologies have created make it more difficult for disempowered communities to properly maintain their physical and mental health and benefit from opportunities that should afford them upward social mobility.

Women of color, specifically black women, have been at the forefront of countless social movements. It is black women who birthed the Black Lives Matter movement and continue to keep it alive. Black women, their culture, and their image have been the blueprint for so much of what has become considered American culture, and have had an undeniable impact on the artistic world.

What you don't know can hurt you and others!

 

We have been miseducated in this country and are provided with limited information about the contributions of Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC). Understanding the cultural contributions of those who came before us has the ability to empower, inspire, motivate, and activate us to manifest greatness in our lives. There is much to uncover.

You may know about Rosa Parks; but, do you know Claudette Colvin.

If you do and are proud that you know of her, do you know the next tier down, and the next tier down, and so on? Do you know the history of your neighborhood and in your family?

We often celebrate about 10 Black, Hispanic, etc. folks during the months relegated to celebrate BIPOC. It makes folks, particularly white folks, feel that they have got it covered. Really, wha...

After the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other black Americans, the American Public Health Association and other leading medical organizations have declared racism as a public health crisis.

As a result, those in medical education began to look inward toward how their systems of training and service could be perpetuating racism and the varied health inequities that physicians are ostensibly working to alleviat...

Have you noticed a recent surge in the number of people of color who appear on company websites and in commercials? You might have even observed companies highlighting or even promoting people of color in and to top leadership positions. While these efforts point in the right direction of dismantling racism, they fall flat if the intent is for "show only" and there is little sustained commitment to ensure racial equity. All...

Arthur Ashe once said, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

His powerful words encourage us to move from places of fear, complacency, stagnation, ignorance and more to conscious, courageous and committed actions. Often people wonder where to start and believe they are powerless to make changes to dismantle racism. Yet if each of us starts where we are, our daily choices can result in radical changes in the stat...

Members of the clergy face a uniquely precarious challenge during times of peril. The church is so often where people who are confused, frustrated, in pain and in need of refuge turn for help and counsel. America currently faces a moment of history marked with racial tumult, so how will clergy members choose to wield the power of the pulpit?

As we learned after the nationwide reaction following the murder of George Floyd last year, it often takes a substantial wake up call for people to recognize the experiences of people outside of their communities. It took a deadly pandemic and the circulation of gruesome and disturbing footage to create the uproar that resulted in unprecedented accountability for the police officer who committed murder.

We are living in a new world in which virtually any knowledge is at our fingertips. The age of technology has completely revolutionized our daily lives, but specifically how we absorb information and stay updated on current events. This means that the way racism is viewed has been transformed as has the perspective on how to tackle it.

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...

Educational disparities are not a surprise to any of our listeners. What might be a surprise to some are the obstacles that many face. Not only underfunded schools and poor understanding of what it means to work with BIPOC children but the day to day assault and microaggressions that come from the school system itself.

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. Fear, doubt, shame, and guilt were just a few of the emotions that surfaced, especially for people who already believed that they “treated all people the same.” How do we move people from overwhelm to action? We answer some of this question and more in our next episode of Dismantle Racis...

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...
