I’m glad you are here, Now let’s make shift happen.

Weekly Theme - Transition

Transition is in the air. I am encouraged to see racial justice coming into the light –again.  Crowds gathering across this nation and the world at large, masked and active and willing to risk their lives in this pandemic for this very important cause that I wholeheartedly support bring hope for a new paradigm.   Back in 1992 when Rodney King was brutalized on video that went viral before we even knew that term, I thought we would have made some strides.  

28 years and 100s of black men and women murdered by police later, the time has come. It is now. Transitioning to justice for all.  

Since George Floyd’s brutal murder there is a well-understood and welcome uprising flying in the face of rampant white supremacy that festered for 400 years.  While I sit in my secluded woodland studio tucked into all that is peaceful in the world, feeling disconnected from the frontlines, I am diving into the history of what got us to where we are.  I am learning about countless instances of systemic injustice where transition to fairness is possible with simple change.  Our path to where we are is clear and it is clear too, that long overdue shift is happening and needs my support.

Transition.  

My themes are normally a weeklong focus.  This theme will be a focus for weeks and weeks, as long as it takes to see the changes needed to remove systemic mistreatment of black people. We all have the ability to take action to make change.  

I will question our police chief who denied my friend Dave a gun permit, a denial clearly based solely the color of Dave’s skin.  

What action can you take this week in your area?

If you are interested in learning the history of our age-old racial injustice, there are several reading lists that will help.  Start with this article, A Case For Reparations by Ta-Nehisi Coates.   It is a long one and there is an audio version available right from the link.

I am committed to affecting change in our systemic injustice.  You can find weekly posts with action plans right here.  This week – read that article if you haven’t already and leave a comment here with any insight to share.
