Talking about race can be extremely difficult for many of us, but without being able to discuss issues around race there can be no healing around race, and we desperately need healing and bridging the racial divide. My guest today, Milagros Phillips, is an author, speaker, seminar leader, and race coach, and has spent the last 25 years bringing race literacy to universities, national leaders, corporations, and non-profits, and I am thrilled to bring her wisdom to The PurposeGirl Podcast.
Today’s episode is longer than our typical episode because I haven’t covered race on this podcast yet and I wanted a very thorough discussion, and my guest today is incredibly knowledgeable and eloquent. Milagros starts with a very important history of racism.
Milagros says that ignorance is key to maintaining racism, and she is passionate about educating people and therefore helping combat racism. In order to move forward we need to be willing to sit in discomfort, to listen to others talk about what is happening to them, to hear the experiences of others, and I hope that this conversation brings you greater understanding. It certainly opened my eyes.
