Derrick Dawson – Dismantling Racism Re-release

~We decided to re-release this episode because we couldn’t think of a better voice to head during this time. We have chosen to mute ourselves and support #amplifymelanatedvoices through June 7th. 

“We have inherited a system and there’s nothing we can do about it except acknowledge that and dismantle it. But if we don’t acknowledge it, then we are actually maintaining [it].” ~Derrick Dawson

A conversation that eloquently connects the dots between capitalism and systemic racism? Straight talk about our American way of life and the foundation of white supremacy upon which it was built? Yes, please, to both! 

Derrick Dawson, co-program coordinator of the Regional Organizing for Anti-Racism, aka Chicago Roar, sheds light on the myriad ways white supremacy continues to fester and flourish. Using the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as metaphor and proving ground, Derrick hits our collective compliance with his high-powered truth rays. He exposes us to the vicious strategies employed by corporations and power-brokers hell-bent on destroying our relationship to our planet, our communities, and ourselves. Once you see the light, I guarantee you won’t be able to look away.  

Derrick Dawson is a member of the AntiRacism Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, and served as its Co-Chair for three years. He is the Training Manager at the Chicago law firm of Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg in Chicago, and is a graduate student and teaching assistant in English Composition at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Derrick was also a broadcaster and journalist in the United States Navy, where he served for eight years on ships in Asia and the Pacific.

Autism Acceptance begins with Self Acceptance

Jude Morrow presented with communication and social difficulties early in life, which led to the diagnosis of Asperger’s at age 11. Despite having educational challenges, Jude progressed through secondary school and graduated from the University of Ulster with an honor’s degree in social work in 2012. Jude also wrote an article to give practical advice to those on the spectrum during COVID lockdowns and quarantine and shelter in place orders.

Why Does Daddy Always Look So Sad? is an incredibly honest and inspiring memoir detailing Jude’s life experiences and how living with autism ultimately shaped his journey. And, he’s not alone. About 1 in 68 children in the US is affected by autism. There are nearly 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK alone; that’s more than 1 in 100. If you include friends and families, autism is a part of daily life for millions of people around the world.

“For as long as I remember I’ve always been different. The difference now is that I embrace and love my difference, and I want everyone like me to do the same.”

Why Does Daddy Always Look So Sad? quickly rose to a bestseller after being self-published in the UK. Beyond Words Publishing will be releasing this debut memoir to the US in the midst of National Autism Awareness Month on April 7, 2020. Jude will be traveling to the States during the week of his launch to speak and advocate for all those who face disabilities today. Through his writing, Jude proves that those with autism can grow to live happy and successful lives-free from marginalization and societal beliefs.
