LIFE SERIES #4: Black Lives Matter - Doing The Work

Lexci Mack joins WonderFilledWeek in the fourth installment of the LIFE SERIES. Lexci shares deeply personal experiences of growing up as a Black woman in this country and offers sound advice on how to be an effective ally. Join us as we discuss white privilege, racial bias and protecting our mental health to avoid burnout (Activism is a marathon, not a sprint!). We also offer resources including books, movies, programs and podcasts to check out to better educate ourselves on TRUE American History, what it's like to be Black in America and how to help moving forward.
