The most recent episode of NPR's Us & Them is called "Black Talk" is an eye-opening episode about "the talk" that black parents often have with their child about how to act and what to do if they every get pulled over by the police.

#Podcast recommendation: Failed Missionary. It's an honest and raw look at how mission work often fails both those who serve and those to whom they are "called" to serve.
WV Teacher Strike Show more
I misspoke. Teachers are striking again tomorrow because there is a rumor the House may call a Motion to Reconsider, which would let them vote again. Continued well-wishes, prayers, and support would be appreciated.
@WolfDreamer Red for ed! So proud of them, you, and all other teachers across the nation right now. Standing in solidarity all the way from Colorado and feeling the discouragement of heart equally as much, but loving how much momentum and movement is happening across the nation with each protest and strike that’s happening.

Just finished listening to the most recent episode of the Freedom Road podcast. Lisa Sharon Harper interviews Civil Rights Movement veteran Ruby Nell Sales.
