Reflections On (My) Race

I’ve struggled with angst and questions about race since I can remember. What I’ve not always said is — it’s personal.

In June 2020 I’m compelled to recall and reflect on certain facts and experiences of my life, some for the first time. What follows is an imperfect but honest attempt to examine my own ‘lens’, brush it off and adjust the aperture so I can see and show myself clearly. To quite literally put skin in the game. Because, though I can’t say exactly to whom or why, my gut says it matters.

It’s June…
