One of the unspoken accomplishments in life is the ability to identify true allies; this unprecedented quarantine period has been an effective filtering system to identify them.
Along with lifelong friends and family, the steady stream of communication I shared with influencers, decision makers and entrepreneurs who took a proactive approach during these racially turbulent times hit home. Instead of watching from the sidelines, they want to be in the game.
Their urgency to make change, collaborate and plan future strategies for a more progressive, fair and equitable future especially for black people further defines what a genuine ally is.
