The man behind the speech
sojo.net Vincent G. Harding wrote the speech Martin Luther King Jr. delivered exactly one year before King was assassinated.
commondreams.org "Our nation is being held hostage by the gun industry, and until the industry is held fully accountable for the direct role it plays in these massacres, communities across the nation will continue to live in fear of the next horrendous attack."
Check Your Privilege
This one might hurt some feelings but it serves as a reminder that it’s so important to look to BIPOC educators (and pay them) for their insight based on their lived experience.
When a yt person positions themselves as an expert on race, danger tends to follow. But it is especially problematic for a yt person to make money off of antiracism education because there is a clear conflict of interest.
We and other educators seem to get this question fairly often, so here’s a few reasons (of many) not to go pick up “White Fragility.”
Donate to our Venmo today. All collected today will be sent to Rowhouse Publishing (@rowhousepub) and Young Black and Lit (@youngblacklit).
Rowhouse Publishing does things differently with their equitable, transparent model, and Young Black and Lit sources and distributes new children’s books featuring Black main characters to youth at no cost to the youth or their families. Swipe up in our stories to visit youngblackandlit.org.

On this #TransDayofVisibility, may all Unitarian Universalists declare our unapologetic support for trans people. As a parent and a faith leader, I know that #translivesaredivine. At the UUA, we emphatically denounce the vicious attacks happening in state legislatures around the country against trans people and their lives, well-being, rights and access to healthcare.
To dehumanize another is distort and damage one’s own humanity. This country is in dire need of more humanity, more compassion, more love and more justice for all.
