A simple trip to the grocery store….

This fall I want to share this footage from Cracking the Codes: Understanding the System of Inequity.  In it, author and educator Joy DeGruy tells how her sister-in-law used her white privilege to take a stand against the system of inequity.  I hope you will share this with others and take time to talk with them about her story — and your own.

This story reminds us that those who understand the system of inequity, both how it we internalize it and how it plays out in the world, are in a position to take a stand for change…even at the local grocery store.
