Sisters Talk About Race, STAR, began in the comments of a Facebook post in response to racial tension sparked by the George Floyd killing (2020). Women from a broad range of backgrounds came together asking themselves, “How do I have this conversation about race? What can I say that will take this complicated space and do more than we have ever done before? How may I confront my own bias and create opportunities to bring about systemic change – all at the same time? ” We have gathered in this space to do the impossible. If we knew how to birth the impossible, equality for all, we would not be in the moment and conditions that we are. That is why we are here, now! Our togetherness makes what seems impossible an achievable task.
Our community is made up of women who want to make a difference in the world. We are here to be our true Selves. We are here to undo racism, violence and the historical effects of slavery. It is necessary to create a deeply meaningful conversation within ourselves and with one another in order to achieve these two things.
