Show Notes

Episode 21: MProper Mimi is joined by some awesome Millennials, a Gen Z and another Gen Xer to discuss I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown. Listen in as we talk about our different experiences in school, church and life when it comes to dealing with race...and how we are coping now. Over the weeks that our small multigenerational book club met together, I was surprised to learn from my daughter and cousin how their generations (who I thought did not see color) now perceive some of their childhood experiences. Even as we read through chapters about Austin's experiences, we touched a little upon race and reconciliation in the church, diversity in our public and private schools as well as how we manage to keep reading books with such heavy topics! Drop me a message or voice note after you listen to let me know if you can relate. Did you read the book also? What did you think?  I would love to hear from you, Ciao!
