My first real breakthrough in understanding how Blacks have experienced racism historically and continue to do so today came from a family friend. Her great-grandfather’s experiences as a slave and her own dealings with racism in work, church, and social environments were appalling, but they also revealed her inner strength and spiritual power, which left a deep and lasting impression on me.
