Resources Suggested by the Racial Healing Group

Racism is a Heart Disease

In this 20 minute interview, Dr. Ruth King offers 6 practices to support racial healing. I recommend this because it’s short but profound, offers hope, and is consistent with the four vows I say every day at meditation.

One of the 6 practices she recommends is the formation of a Racial Affinity Group, described in this excerpt from her book Mindful of Race. We realized that what she described is what we’re doing. We added that book to our “future reading” list.
