Over the last few months, social media has been filled with news of racial violence. And yet we continue to show up for school. Take AP tests. Scroll through social media. Take care of younger siblings. What we often haven’t done is learn how to manage our own wellness and self-care.
Recently Breakthrough Houston hosted a valuable conversation to discuss ways our Breakthrough scholars can use our voices and platforms for advocacy and racial justice, plus how to manage our own wellness and self-care through it all.
Four panelists joined us for the conversation:
- Dr. Gene Batiste, Chief Diversity Officer of St. John’s School
- Dr. Rheeda Walker, a licensed clinical psychologist and tenured professor at the University of Houston and author of The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health
- Emani Jerome, Co-Founder of Bridge Builders 305
- Anthony Teague, Co-Founder of Bridge Builders 305
We hope you’ll listen to their valuable perspectives and advice on both racial justice and self-care.
