We See Through Our Own Lens. A Black Perspective.

Troublemaking Quotes

“White Americans increasingly reject racial injustice in principle, but remain reluctant to accept the measures necessary to eliminate the injustice.” T. F. Pettigrew, 1979

“Just being a Negro doesn’t qualify you to understand the race situation any more than being sick makes you an expert on medicine.”  Dick Gregory

“I have become convinced that it is only by naming racism, asking the question ‘How is racism operating here?’ and then mobilizing with others to actually confront the system and dismantle it that we can have any significant or lasting impacts on the pervasive ‘racial’ health disparities that have plagued this country for centuries.”  Dr. Camara Jones
