“It has been many months since you visited [our school] last fall, but I have not stopped hearing from parents and teachers who learned so much from your presentation and discussions, and who were truly impacted by your words.  Just last week, both a teacher and a parent approached me to say that they were still thinking about the conversations you engendered.  Thanks to your talk with parents, we’ve been able to continue the conversation sparked with white parents who want to explore their identities and the systems of oppression.  I want to thank you for inspiring so many.” ~ Kim Chaloner, Grace Church School
