A Note from Grandma Cyd

During the June 27, 2020, broadcast of HPZ, I suggested we all pick up the book Me and White Supremacy: A 28-Day Challenge to Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad. The reason I’m recommending this book specifically is because it requires learning, self-reflection, and most importantly, personal action. Learn more here.
