A podcast worth listening to:
Hear to Slay hosted by Roxane Gay and Tressie McMillan Cottom. They tackle various intersectional societal issues and topics with comedy and grace while interviewing experts and thought leaders in their fields, including folks like Stacey Abrams, Gabrielle Union, and Ava DuVernay.
A concept worth understanding:
Change happens whether we like it or not. Resisting change is the resistance of the natural process of our world. We should endeavor to lean in to change with curiosity and open-mindedness as doing so frees the mind and allows us to look forward.
A Twitter account worth following:
Medical student Joel Bervell’s Twitter and TikTok. He talks about the racial disparities that plague modern-day medicine and advocates for changes that promote the fair and ethical treatment of all.
An article worth reading:
I'm very interested in Digital Literacy and Artificial Intelligence and encourage folks to watch Coded Bias to get a better understanding of how algorithms are already impacting our lived experience. As an article, I think this exploration of AI breaching into Digital Blackface with this "AI Influencer" is very interesting.
A habit worth forming:
Intentional self-development. Do something just for yourself at least three times a week, preferably every day. This could be going to your dance or art class, taking the time to read a new book, or hiking—whatever personally brings you joy.
