Dear Supporters, 

Thank you so much for believing in this work!  Your generosity will allow for the creation of a range of resources dedicated to helping our society think seriously about race in a thoughtful and empowering way.  CrossCulturalSolidarity.com is quickly becoming a trusted place for teachers, students, and civil rights workers to gain meaningful understandings of the depth and breadth of the history of racial justice freedom struggles.  Thank you for joining me on the journey to manifest this important resource.   

The core of these resources will be five series of writings. Three will focus on histories of solidarity: there will be a series on the history of black and brown solidarity; on white allyship; and on black internationalism.  There will also be a series on understanding the history of white supremacy; and another on understanding the true breadth and depth of the civil rights movement.  I break down the visions for each of these series here.

Each story I write will eventually be accompanied by a series of short video lectures and interviews with historians.  For an example, here's my eight-part interview with historian Waldo Martin about the many under-discussed dimensions of the Montgomery bus boycott.   I'll also be using these resources as a foundation to run workshops and discussion groups for teachers, civil rights workers, and ultimately anyone who wishes to cultivate their understanding.  Simply reach out to me if you have a group of people who would be interested in that, and we can discuss the possibility. 

Once again, a sincere thank you to all who value this work.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Goals
$593 of $1,300 per month
Meeting this goal would allow me to dedicate a full half of the month to the creation of histories of racial justice.  The outcome would be two full stories a month, plus the creation of additional video lectures and discussion groups.
