“To honestly confront the psychological illness of racism, America needs a true mirror—one that reflects our light and our shadow; one that provokes a real moral and spiritual awakening. Only then can we bear the truth of our collective responsibility.”
Key Speaking Message
Yes, racism’s ugly impact can be seen in America’s organizations, prisons, streets, and homes. And yes, homophobia causes a staggering number of LGBT teens to end their lives in despair.
How, then, shall we bear witness to these realities? How does denying and dismissing these problems enrage and shame those oppressed by them? How does privilege promote blindness to injustice? When we confront social injustice, how can we pull back the veil of ignorance and open the eyes of compassion and empowerment?
