Expand your perspective, by changing your feed: Change Begins in Our Minds

Deep-rooted anti-blackness has oppressed the black voice and community for 400 years. We’ve compiled a list of resources, accounts, media to help you establish and grow an understanding of the issues that continue to plague our society and destroy black lives, and also celebrate black culture. #EDGE4ALL

Our goal is to create the foundation for our members and the Sacramento region in an ongoing, active focus on inclusion and belonging. One way to ensure the “ongoing” is to incorporate diverse perspectives into your daily life and idea intake. Most of the education we received as children and most of the media we consume as adults was developed for a white audience which intentionally and harmfully erased events and perspectives that molded the African-American/Black experience today. We’ve compiled a list of content and accounts we enjoy following that begin to scratch the surface of what’s been buried, and celebrate African-American/Black culture and history.
