Our goal is simple—educate white people on black history.
#BHforWP is a multiethnic collective dedicated to loving black and brown people by educating, resourcing, and challenging white people to actively participate in racial justice. The highest calling of humanity is to love. Whether you know it or not, the racial disparities in our country hurt us. They train us to protect our advantages rather than love others, and that mentality reduces us.

New episodes will be released on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.

    The Stereotype Project

    The Stereotype Project

    For many, images in the media are a primary point of reference for the various characteristics people belonging to other social groups and cultures may possess. Additionally, these images often serve as the most contact individuals may have with people from different social and cultural groups.
    The Stereotype Project Foundation seeks to deconstruct the way we learn about people and cultures while highlighting the gaps and illuminating limited and biased representations of social groups in the media.
    It will study the images of cultural and social groups disseminated in the media; investigate how these images become norm; and then create opportunities for persons within those cultural and social groups to challenge, correct and add to the mainstream understanding of the group. 
    Meet the team at The Stereotype Project.

    Finding My Voice with Emerald Garner

    Finding My Voice with Emerald Garner

    Emerald Garner wrote this memoir to honor her father, Eric Garner, as she feels that many people forget about the family and how it feels to grieve after experiencing trauma. She has been leading the voice for change ever since the wake of her father’s death. Her powerful and vulnerable essays call for both the transformation of the justice system and police force, as well as accountability for those in power.
    One of her achievements includes getting the Eric Garner Anti-Chokehold Act approved. On June 8, 2020, both houses of the New York State Assembly passed this act. It criminalizes the use of chokeholds, or aggravated strangulation, of any kind by police officers in the state of New York. The act “would occur when a police officer or peace officer obstructs breathing or blood circulation by using a chokehold or similar restraint, thereby causing physical injury or death to another person." This would be a class C felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Too religious for me

It’s important subject matter and the first episode started off promising but they veered into a very heavy evangelical Christian point of view that wasn’t for me. It’s a good podcast but I’m not it’s audience and if you’re not an evangelical, it might not be for you either.

Thank you

I love this podcast thank you so much for doing this! I was looking to learn more about BLM and your podcast came up in my search so I downloaded the episodes not knowing it was a Christian that made it! We need more of us to sand up for equality in this country we need to put our prayers in action! Thank you again for making such a great podcast!
