I thought I knew, but didn’t.

After growing up and living in rural and small-town Wisconsin for my first thirty-six years of my life–it was a shocking eye-opener to move to the racially diverse and racism-afflicted major city of Charlotte, North Carolina. My seven years spent there were the catalyst of a change-of-mind that radically altered the way I saw the world, interpreted events, and viewed the perspectives I was raised with. I am humbled and grateful. And, hope to be able to help others understand the things I now see.
