In case you didn’t know…#BlackoutTuesday

I keep thinking of James Baldwin’s “The Fire Next Time.” There have been many “next times” since he wrote that essay, but perhaps we can make this time one of the last times.

I’m putting my megaphone aside today. It’s time—it’s past time—for allies to listen and learn.

So I am joining many people across the country to observe #BlackoutTuesday today.

Read a book. Engage in some activism. Donate some money if you can—or time and attention if you can’t.
