Here are the items for the upcoming discussion evening :
Book : "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man" by Emmanuel Acho
Podcast : Brene with Emmanual Acho
Open the Conversation
We believe there is such value in honest and loving conversations, especially with this topic that is so deeply rooted in society and systems. That is why we want to encourage you to reach out to a black family member, neighbour, friend or colleague to open up a conversation as an action toward a better world. It may be a time to confess or ask questions, but it will mainly be a time to listen, learn and demonstrate a new level of support. We know these are uncomfortable conversations to have and they can be very painful. That is why we are happy to provide some resources and guidelines to help in opening a conversation with the people in your life. We hope they can help you have a loving and healthy dialogue as you continue to talk about the racism that exists in our world. These conversations are ways in which we can make strides towards unity and change.
Some may not be ready to have these conversations, and that is ok! We are here to support you in whichever part of the journey you are on. We encourage you to keep listening and learning and maybe one day, this resource will be here to help you in a time where you are ready!
