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.

Truly helpful

I have been trying to educate myself about racism in America. The redlining episode really helped. The hosts kept everything easy to understand, drew cohesive narrative lines that I could follow. The recommendations at the end of that episode pointed me to other sources. As a white 53 y/o woman I know I have missed so much that has happened in my community- disgusting practices. If you are newly becoming aware of racism and want to learn more and be on the side of solutions for black and brown citizens this is a great place to start!

Religion is Necessary

I’ve seen a lot of criticism of the inclusion of Christian doctrine but I think it’s very important to know. Most of the perpetrators of white supremacy identified as Christian and it is useful to know how white supremacy is in reality a bastardization of Christianity. With that knowledge you can also engage with people today that believe in Christianity but do not believe in systemic racism which unfortunately is quite correlated.

It’s very similar to understanding how foreign terrorists that identify as Muslim are also bastardizing another beautiful religion. Understanding Islamic doctrine in that context can help combat Islamophobia just as understanding Christian doctrine can help combats white supremacy.
