You can’t turn on the news these days without white supremacy and racism being part of the headline news. Yet, how we define both these things isn’t just about the color of one’s skin. And then, how we choose talk, or not talk about them is what is causing more strife on the planet. Roxy Manning, PhD and Sarah Peyton share with us in today’s podcast how to have antiracist conversation and how to truly understand our own biases, even when we think we don’t have them. Plus they talk about their books – How to Have Antiracist Conversations: Embracing Our Full Humanity to Challenge White Supremacy, and the companion workbook – The Antiracist Heart: A Self-Compassion and Activism Handbook.
