Not my usual posting today, in solidarity with #blacklivesmatter #blackouttuesday
You may want to use the time when you might have read my post to read up on what’s happening right now – both in the US and in the UK. I’m giving some links in case you’re not sure where to start. I need to educate myself, just as we all do. Including acknowledging my white privilege, and the impact of the UK’s history of the slave trade on where we are now.
