What We’re Reading, Watching, Listening to, Learning in September

This new month means we are inching closer to the end of 2021 and with that comes a desire to close chapters and tie loose ends. But we will continue to make it a priority to read and learn about the inspired work of the BIPOC community. There is an immense amount of content out in the world that is shouting to get out into the hands of more people so we can learn about their stories. We are sharing just a few in this month’s post. Reading This memoir dives deep into the experience of being both Black [...]

We are halfway through 2021 and it almost seems like we just appeared here.

Reading, Watching, Listening, Learning: Throwback Edition

There’s something about a throwback we just can’t get enough of. Between Cruel Summer’s constant 90’s vibes and a Friend’s reunion we couldn’t love more, we’re thinking about all the things we loved about the last decade of the 20th century. No high-speed internet. Butterfly clips. Overuse of the phrase “as if.” This decade was nothing if not memorable. Today we’re talking about a few throwbacks you can indulge that will have you feeling the 90s vibes even more. Reading What’s better than reading a post-apocalyptic novel written in the 90s about the year 2025 by one of the [...]

WHAT WE’RE READING, LEARNING, WATCHING, AND LISTENING TO IN APRIL

April showers bring May flowers. The phrase insinuates that the heavy rainfall in April will bring about the blooms in May. We all know that making our way through the murky waters of a difficult season will bear something beautiful on the other side. But, May has come and gone a few times and we’re still experiencing the rain.  The surge of violence against marginalized groups continues. Hate-fueled attacks on Asian Americans have spiked across major U.S. cities last year — in some cases by triple-digit percentages.  We all know we can do more, read more and listen more. [...]

What We’re Reading, Learning, Watching, and Listening to in February

This month, as we celebrate Black History Month, we want to continue to spotlight Black women and other people of color. It is as important now as it ever was to keep the conversation alive and to move the needle forward. World leaders come and go and can slide the scale in one direction or the other to some extent, but we still believe in our core that real change and actual equality comes from daily work done by ordinary, everyday people. It comes from knowing your neighbor, having hard conversations, and truly hearing each other’s stories, pain, and [...]

What We’re Reading, Watching, Listening, and Learning in January

As we enter a new year, there is always the temptation to leave the past behind us. Never before has that urge been so strong as with 2020, perhaps. But the past is never the past and in order to move forward, we have to acknowledge the value of reflection.  For many, last year was a wake-up call in terms of the war cry that rang out from the BIPOC community. We heard their stories, saw their pain, and acknowledged their fear, but we can’t just let that knowledge fade. As we set goals and direct our intention, we [...]
