Now, in a time when we are ALL mourning the destruction of black bodies on camera, there is something new in the air that is different. I believe that we are converging on a hopeful time when we can talk about equity with depth that has previously been too painful or too difficult. Now we must prepare ourselves for the difficult conversations, and the unusual efforts to make equity in community media more than a pursuit, we must make unusual efforts to actually be equitable. “If you waan good you nose haffi run”
