Today, Melody and Raechel talk about what it means to be an ally (or, the more preferred term, “accomplice”). What does it mean to be accountable when you’re called out? How can we break through “white fragility”? How do we communicate with fellow activists in the struggle, and how do we communicate with non-activists? How can we center the voices of people of color without asking them to do the labor of teaching all the time? How can we actually put our bodies on the line to be in real solidarity with the movement for Black lives and Black liberation?
