Racial Justice at Work: Inviting Conversation with Loving Accountability
Racial justice requires that white folks and non-Black people of color be clear in the ways they perpetuate anti-Black colorism, both historically and moment to moment. While it is easy to cause harm unknowingly, recognizing and getting curious about one’s role can be difficult when the default is to protect the ego. This is where loving accountability for one’s self can be a disruptor that opens dialogue. In this companion podcast episode for Racial Justice at Work: Practical Solutions for Systemic Change (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2023), lead author Mary-Frances Winters and special projects editor Gabrielle Gayagoy Gonzalez sit down with Rochelle Younan-Montgomery, Instructional Designer at The Winters Group, Inc., to discuss her chapter, “Accountability through Restorative Dialogue.” Listen in as they explore how leaning in with curiosity and a sense of humility can pave the way for telling the truth and centering those most harmed by racial injustice.
