Five: Love Is A Battle

The phrase comes from a James Baldwin piece on the struggle for racial justice. There is hard work that we all have to do. I am also inspired by the George Yancy essay, Dear White America, from 2015. It’s not pretty. It’s a struggle. And as Baldwin says, love unmasks much about us we’d rather leave behind the mask. Get it out in the open and fight for it. NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Color of Change are both among the many organizations doing good hard work on this issue. I will be contributing and continuing to grow and evolve.
