“Change culture and you change lives. You can also change the course of history...When strategy competes with culture, culture wins every time. This is one of the reasons why the most brilliant anti-white supremacy strategies in the world have failed to dislodge white-body supremacy from our culture...But we can never belong to a strategy. We can never belong to a movement, either, though we can be part of it. We can only belong to a culture.”
- Resmaa Menakem
"There is a common misconception that equity and equality mean the same thing — and that they can be used interchangeably, especially when talking about education. But the truth is they do not — and cannot."
- Blair Mann
"Education can’t save us, we have to save education - To love all children, we must struggle to create schools we are taught to believe are impossible: Schools built on justice, love, and anti-racisim."
~ Dr. Bettina Love
