“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.” Ida B. Wells
Slavery, racism, white supremacy, and discrimination are a part of our nation’s identity.
Ignoring them doesn’t make them go away.
Pretending they don’t exist doesn’t make them go away.
Avoiding certain topics doesn’t make them go away.
The wrong still exists. The wrong still matters. The wrong still impacts.
So let’s right the wrongs. And let’s begin that process by first acknowledging the wrong, getting to know the wrong, and examining the wrong – under the light of truth!
