Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian Featured in “Time to Listen Tuesdays”

L. M. Quraishi is a children’s book writer, teacher and mother who is also involved in the We Need Diverse Books initiative.

Quraishi runs a series on her website called #TimetoListen Tuesdays that is dedicated to listening to the voices of people who are advocating for diverse books for children and featured my note, “On Power & Privilege Denial, and “Hurt Feelings” in Social Justice Work” in her series this week.

“Every once in a while I stumble on a blog so thought-provoking and essential that it renews my gratitude for the age of information in which we live. This article by Relando Thompkins-Jones from his blog Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian, perfectly continues the dialogue Ellen Ohand Libby Bray began, about how critical it is for each and every one of us to make space to listen to those less privileged than ourselves.”
