Hi Yโ€™all! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

We pick up our conversation with Sharon Hurley Hall. We get real about white supremacy and how we as individuals can push back and be anti-racist activists in this current world.

We discuss the audiobook release of her book, Iโ€™m Tired of Racism, and how racism is the waters that we swim in, not just the shark. Our conversation held both hope and reality. We discussed how:

  • Elevating voices and being a conduit of truth in this moment of racial and social awakening
  • Finding hope at the micro and local level, while looking at the global impact
  • Pushing back against algorithms and tech
  • Going beyond skin color to find โ€œour peopleโ€
  • Envisioning a new way forward

I hope you enjoy our conversation! You can find the new audiobook release of 'Iโ€™m Tired of Racism' on Books2read.com.

Equality Advocate. Author. Educator.

Empowering equality and eliminating racism through storytelling and education for systems change.

Iโ€™m a Co-Founder of Mission Equality, where we work with start-ups, non-profits and progressive organisations to create a more sustainable approach to leadership and business, and where weโ€™re using progressive education to work at all levels (individual, collective and systemic) to build an alternative to capitalism that we call Equalism.

In addition, Iโ€™m the Founder and Curator-in-Chief of Sharonโ€™s Anti-Racism Newsletter, which has around 6000 subscribers. There I share:

  • My own experiences of and perspectives on racism and anti-racism, based on several decades living and working in different countries

  • Personally curated articles by other anti-racism writers
  • Resources and tools for fighting racism

And Iโ€™m the author of Amazon bestseller Iโ€™m Tired of Racism, a book that helps Black people experiencing racism feel seen which is also โ€œessential reading for every white person, especially those doing the hard work of anti-racism.โ€ And I speak regularly about about equality and anti-racism.
