On this MLK Day, I hope everyone takes time to learn what Martin Luther King, Jr. was truly about, the resistance he faced, and the way history repeats itself.

When the FBI Spied on MLK (The Atlantic): The extent to which the FBI surveilled MLK and their attempts to discredit him are important to understand as we engage in activism now. 

The Connection Between Wellness Influencers and the QAnon (Cosmopolitan): The more I learn about QAnon the less I understand.

154,000 Black Women Left the Workforce in December (Huffpost): What is behind this crisis.

They Say This Isn't America, but for most it is (Harper's Bazaar): We are so quick to deny our legacy.

The Murky World of Moderation on Clubhouse (Vanity Fair): Jury's still out for me on Clubhouse (is it more than an old-school chatroom that uses audio instead of typing?). I think I'll stay on my beloved Reddit where the mods truly rock. But this is an interesting look into how far moderation should go, and how it can look.

How to Hold Your Company Accountable to Its Promise of Racial Justice (HBR): Practical steps with case studies.
