Today I am taking a moment to celebrate Black History Month. To be honest, this moment feels too short and inadequate. I really wish I planned better for this month because this celebration deserves more attention than what I have created space for. While I aim to elevate black women and black moms all year long in the SMA, I understand the special importance of taking extra time to do this in February and I have already committed to dedicating more than one episode to this next year. I hope that in acknowledging my imperfect action here, other white allies will step up their game too. This is work is crucial, even when the steps feel too small. Something is better than nothing. And I vow to keep learning more so I can keep doing more.
Listen in to learn how to celebrate black history and black women by becoming a better ally and, better yet, an accomplice. Please take notes as I share powerful resources and a fantastic list of podcasts hosted by black women whom I admire tremendously. I want you to go subscribe to them all!
