In this powerful talk, Breeshia Wade, author of the recently released Grieving While Black, explores how the underlying truth of impermanence relates to states of grief and loss, and that if we wish to bring about change in an unjust system, for example to deal with racial inequality, then we must accept that this change will give rise to a sense of grief and loss in those who are accustomed to the privileges that inequality provides. We must be ready to embrace this grief and loss if we are ever to bring about the change we wish to see in the world.
