Anthony Tolliver reached out and shared The Grey Challenge with me and I’d like to share it with you.
Many of us have been looking for direction in how to help change the systems that have created racial injustice in this country. The Grey Challenge focuses on changing hearts and minds by committing to expand our awareness of the issues and challenges — and challenging others to do the same.
It’s a challenge I choose to accept. I hope you’ll join me.
I also realize this is just one step in becoming a bigger part of the solution. I can do more. We all can and need to do more.
Thank you for sharing, Anthony.

The Grey Challenge When we put Black and White together we get Grey. If we are going to see true change beyond social media posts, we will have to meet in that Grey area. There has been an outpouring of support and willingness from many in the white community asking what they can do. Well here is a first step you can take. We challenge you to educate yourselves on the black experience in America by watching this curated list of films. The more you are truly aware of what has transpired and is continuing to happen in this country, the more empathy and understanding can be had. True change requires empathy. Empathy starts with understanding. Understanding comes with seeing from a different point of view. In order to get to the grey area, you have to be willing to step outside of your own experiences. If you are truly down for the cause of change, healing, and moving forward together, accept this challenge and share it with your friends and family.
