The Moment

Diverse Perspectives Matter: Centering Diversity, Power and Care

“The reality of racism must be honestly confronted for our society to build a more equitable future for all children.” —Ivory A. Toldson, Ph.D.

Advocating for honest history means confronting white supremacy, recognizing the power of representation, promoting the significance of civic duty in the form of voting, and understanding the numerous and oftentimes deadly obstacles Black people specifically have had and continue to overcome in exercising the right to vote. Engaging with this history also means being prepared to deal with emotions that may arise from such study. These LFJ resources can help.
