I love this new version of The Wonder Years because it is telling a story that needs to be told to White Americans who think only their lives matter. The ending broke my heart all four times I watched it with different family members. Tears flow every time I remember the death of Dr. King, whose Dream of creating a Beloved Community has never come to fruition, because White Supremacy has always stood in the way.

White people: I invite you to take a journey of imagination with me to an alternate reality in the United States where White people choose to walk in Black people’s shoes through our nation’s history, in a unique unconventional way. If you are White and do not believe there is…


I don't agree with everything you say in this piece, but I fully understand where you are coming from, Marley. I remain hopeful that America will enter a new era of dismantling racism across all the areas that it rears its ugly head. We had no hope of that happening…


It's about time we got it right. Thanks for speaking truth to power, and also to those of us who just haven't seen what has been happening all along.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I am sharing the excellent Ted Talk video on FB to spread the word.
