Another Way: My Journey on the Moving Walkway of Racism by Madeline Arnold

We are in the midst of a national reckoning on race, spurred by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others. What does it look like for us to bear witness to these racist killings and fight white supremacy as individuals and in community? Many paths are possible and necessary. I will share my personal journey coming to recognize and work against the moving walkway of racism, a metaphor used by Dr. Beverly Daniel-Tatum. As a UU who grew up at Prairie, I also hope to share a few thoughts on how Prairie and its members may be uniquely situated to both perpetuate anti-blackness and resist it.
