With everything going on in our country, I turn to music now as I have in the past to help work out and work through the pain and hurt. To try to heal in the face of a society that still isn’t whole and has resisted being so since long before I was born. A Facebook friend put together a mix of tunes that helps. #BlackLivesMatter
Talking about systemic racism is a hard conversation, even more so when you’re talking about its effects in a community that is already marginalized. Trying to point out the intersections is often met with resistance and constantly exhausting for those who it most affects.
