Growing Minds


Oct 5, 2020

What really is BLM? How can you educate yourself? What is the correct information? How do we find the correct information? How can we be better allies? I have been asking myself these questions for months, and I know I'm not alone. I was lucky to sit down with Erika Pogorzelska, a musician, educator, and phenomenal woman. She tells her story and, ever-so-elegantly answers these questions and more. Below are some resources she's compiled for you. This episode will clear up any misconceptions and motivate you to get involved.
