We’ve got Dr. Tee Williams on the show today. Dr. Tee holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Social Justice Education and I really appreciate his way of taking complex and challenging topics and presenting them in ways that are easy to understand and work with. I really enjoyed being able to learn and correct some of my own thinking, framing and verbiage in real time during this chat.

We covered a lot of ground including cognitive dissonance and how we fight against each others’ oppression, the us vs. it mentality (instead of us vs. them), why he prefers liberation work over anti-anything, how we survive in environments that are constantly hurting us, the role of shame, blame and guilt in oppression, intersectionality and more.

This is good learning episode to share with friends and use for discussion.

    Elizabeth and Dr Williams – I LOVED this conversation so much. I went back and relistened so many times during the conversation, and I am definitely going to have another listen. It was great to hear Dr Williams’ important message which was thorough, timely and compassionate!
