Sit & Listen | Sunday Conversations on Racism

I sat and listened. Story after story told by new friends about their personal experiences with racism. These weren’t stories they heard from their grandparents or stories they read on Facebook.  They were not retelling a story filtered down from a friend of a friend of a friend.  These stories were theirs.  The experiences were owned….

Set Love Free
