Remembering In Order to Heal
Dan Berry – July 20, 2021
Can I just say how much it blesses our entire Brownicity Learning Community that you are engaged in this journey of educating yourself about race/ism.
Not everyone will take the steps you are taking to become a part of the solution needed to bring healing to our very real divides.
One of my recent action steps was to create the Bridge Building Podcast where we are currently talking about the Four “R’s” of a racial reckoning.
Everyone needs to take their first steps — steps that can be unsure and even a little scary, but nonetheless steps that have to be taken.
How can we move forward without understanding? In the upcoming podcast episode. I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Madison Deshay-Duncan, Assistant Teaching Professor at Iowa State University. We discuss Remembering. Dr. Deshay-Duncan understands the importance of us knowing our true history. We had such an incredible discussion on how understanding the past can give us the context we need to truly understand the issues we are dealing with.
Let’s all open our hearts to learn and gain the truth we need to really be free.
We are in this together.
