A black woman holds her oversized posterboard as motorists gather to stand behind Black Preston Hollow teens recently threatened at Sonic. She graces the front page of my Preston Hollow People that arrived last Tuesday. I’ve kept the newspaper on my dining room table to remind myself that I don’t want to go back to the way things were, before March.

The conversations we’re having about how to see people with loving eyes…those are conversations our ancestors should have had four hundred years ago. But since they didn’t, we get to have those conversations now.

We have an significant role to play in changing how people see.

Mommas, daughters, sisters, future grandmothers, godmothers and aunts, we are the truthspeakers and storytellers for multiple generations to come. Together, we get to cultivate language that empowers a new #bodytruth.

…..

Helping people see with love is our privilege. Let’s embrace it, together.
