Maggie and Harmony kick off another Bite-Sized Bits decade by exploring "Martha" by Audre Lorde. Lorde, a famous feminist and American writer, is often not talked about enough when it comes to her poetry. "Martha," published in 1970, was her coming out piece. It explores death and rebirth, loss, coming out, and uncertainty as central themes.

This week Maggie and Harmony read the article "Remember, No One is Coming to Save Us" by Roxane Gay and use the article as a baseline for a discussion on allyship to the Black Lives Matter movement. They also read "For Our White Friends Desiring to be Allies," by Courtney Ariel,  "I Don't Know What to Do With Good White People" by Brit Bennett, and use an excerpt from Untamed by Glennon Doyle Melton. In this episode, our hosts, with the help of the aforementioned texts, attempt to tackle white complicity, fragility, and silence and explore anti-racist action.
