In today's episode, Dionna addresses racial injustices and violence against the Black community. She discusses why it's crucial for allies to process and synthesize their thoughts and emotions internally, while simultaneously doing external actions to help dismantle systemic racism against the Black community.

Below are just a few of the many anti-racism educators, artists, and spiritual guides from the Black community. Please learn, listen, and look to these people for more information on how to become actively anti-racist and how to be a better ally to the Black community.
