How To Be An Ally: A Conversation with Shanterra McBride and Rosalind Wiseman Part 2

July 2, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT


 How To Be An Ally: A Conversation with Shanterra McBride and Rosalind Wiseman Part 2

Two weeks ago, we, Shanterra and Rosalind, met to have a conversation about race, privilege, and what it means to be an ally. This wasn’t an uncommon conversation for us, but it was different because we invited you to be a part of it.

And we are so grateful that you joined us! We received great feedback, critiques, and requests to continue what we started. So, we decided to come together again to answer questions received from you, the participants.

Questions like…


  • What does being a successful ally look like if I am in a mostly white community and my friends are majority my demographic in age, race, money etc?
  • If someone takes offense at something I say, how do I follow up to make it better?
  • If I see someone else say something I think is racist but the person of color it is directed to doesn’t say anything about it, do I bring it up? How?
  • It seems like people can’t make one mistake, even if they have good intentions, without other people attacking them and thinking the worst of them. People make mistakes. How do we deal with this?
  • How do you teach dignity in a school and work culture?
  • How do you keep any semblance of a relationship with an immediate family member when you’ve had the fights and the arguments and have previously said “ok, agree to disagree”. How do you go back and say “no- that’s not enough…”

Join us for a live conversation diving into your questions! And you don’t have to have attended the first one to attend this one. But if you want to you can watch the first one here!

We will open it up for Q&A at the end and will send over a recording after.
