Many of us White fighters for social justice spend so much time combatting racism that we forget to reflect on our own biases, microaggressions, voting decisions and thoughts. We ignore how we also have miles to go to become more evolved humans. To become part of solutions rather than unintentional perpetrators of unjust systems.

Momentum is a blog that captures and reflects the moment we find ourselves in, one where rampant anti-Black racism is leading to violence, trauma, protest, reflection, sorrow, and more. Momentum doesn’t look away when the news cycle shifts.
