Humanity was shaken by the public murder of George Floyd at the hand of the police. In that moment, the world shifted on its axis. Anger, rage, sadness, grief, and pain are being felt and expressed across the globe. So much to be said, so much healing to happen, so much change needed. And, so many conversations to be had. Where do we begin? What can we do? How can we as individuals make a difference? In today’s episode, Christine welcomes Dr. Reggie Blount to the show to begin a conversation on what’s happening and how we do indeed ALL have something we can contribute to the solution.
In this episode, Christine and Reggie discuss:
- How racism, lack of diversity and equality are not necessarily the root issues, rather the consequences of how we fundamentally understand what it means to be human.
- The three “powers” every human being possesses that must be engaged for change to happen.
- Two simple things you can start doing today to help heal the divide.
- How privilege is not something we own, but something we are entrusted with that must be stewarded wisely.
