Fighting racism does not consist of a set of isolated actions that you take; rather these actions must flow from an entire disposition that is oriented toward racial justice. We have to reposition ourselves spiritually, emotionally, culturally, intellectually, and politically to address the myriad ways that racism manifests in the present day. Racial justice is a lifestyle, not an agenda item.
Learning about history is more than learning about what has happened before, it is about understanding what is happening now.
I regularly look to historian Jemar Tisby for context, explanation, and insight as I seek to orient myself toward racial justice. His work strikes me as a remarkable act of generosity and I find it very helpful.
