this was a good week
This was a good week, because:
• Yesterday I had lunch with a social worker who shared with me her plans for amazing, powerful things in the field of anti-discrimination and anti-racism, and I can't wait to see what she does (and share it with you when she's ready).
• My friend and boss, Brené Brown, shared some truths on her social media feeds on how to fight discrimination in the United States (and it's so refreshing to work for someone who has the courage to shout her stance on racism and discrimination right out loud).
• Our family became charter members of the brand-spanking-new National Museum of African-American History and Culture, opening this very weekend (and you can too, here). (Related: this wonderful NPR story on the architecture of the museum).
• Finally, for today's soundtrack, earlier this month the Black Eyed Peas released a remix of their song, Where is the Love, that has a gorgeous new sound and features many well-known singers and celebrities.

With that, let's go out there and make the world a better place. Be brave, all of you, my brothers and sisters -- wherever in the world you may be.
