A Playlist for Recent Events

A Playlist for Recent Events

My heart is heavy with the events of past days. The shooting in St. Paul was literally around the corner from my home.
I find myself in need of listening again to the wisdom and light shed by john a. powell — on opening the question of race to the question of belonging — and by Mahzarin Banaji. She’s one of the founders of the science of implicit bias and her work is so relevant to the work we have urgently to do to grow up as people and a culture. It’s full of truth telling and it holds a reasonable hope.
This is my playlist for yet another collective moment in which we can at best, as Parker J. Palmer might say, not merely let our hearts be broken but feel them breaking open.
