Racism is hiding in plain sight. The unfolding of events in 2020 and the murder of George Floyd, in particular, broke the silence and the smokescreen. It marked the beginning of mass awakening for white people to see the trauma experienced every single day by Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC).
In the premier episode of Dismantle Racism, Rev. Dr. TLC, the host and her guest, Dr. Anita Sanchez, will discuss our complicated history of race and how racism is steeped into the fabric of our society. Dr. Sanchez will discuss the four sacred gifts: the gift to forgive the unforgivable, the gift of unity, the gift of healing, and the gift of hope. She believes that understanding these gifts will illuminate our true purpose, heal our past, deepen our relationships, and help us become a powerful source of inspiration and leadership for the well-being of all humankind.
