I always thought I had been antiracist in practice, living as an adult in Germantown for over 20 years. The last ten years I have come a long way in my understanding of race and how it affects my children and how I have been complicit by not understanding my white privilege and biases. I will share my learnings so far on this incredible continuing journey.
