BONDFIRES

A movement to eradicate racism together

Welcome back to BONDFIRES!

It has been a while since our last post and we have been working very hard to develop new articles and bring a fresh approach to presenting interesting content about the issues that affect people of African descent and all people who are impacted by the disease of racism.

To this end,  BONDFIRES has a number of  guests who will be contributing content to this blog about their experiences and perspectives on how “race” and “racism” influences North American  society  and  people of African descent everywhere.

At BONDFIRES, our hope is to encourage people everywhere to become educated about racism and it’s impact on individuals and society. Our desire is to develop a movement for change that will eradicate racism from North American society and ultimately, the world. To this end, BONDFIRES  wants to acknowledge that our content and subject matter will  lead to passionate dialogue and spirited debate. We welcome contributions and comments from everyone. However,  your comments MUST BE RESPECTFUL. The onus is on you to  “hold your cool ! “, so that you (and your comments) will be taken seriously and  BONDFIRES will allow you to continue to participate in discussions and comments.

Now that we have dealt with BONDFIRES  standards of engagement,  let’s get back to blogging…

Our feature guest for November 2012 is Rev. David Billings, D.Div, an anti-racist trainer and organizer with The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond since 1983. Rev. Billings has worked with anti-racist organizing groups across America and currently consults with Citizens for Economic Equity in New Orleans.

Over the years Rev. Billings organizing work has been cited for many awards including the Westchester County chapter of the National Association of Social Workers “Public Citizen of the Year,” the New Orleans Pax Christi “Bread and Roses” award; the Loyola University of New Orleans “Homeless and Hunger Award”; and the National Alliance against Racist Oppression’s Angela Davis Award for community service. He was the Whitney Young 2006 lecturer at the Westchester County NASW symposium.

Rev. Billings has graciously agreed to contribute to our blog. In a few days, BONDFIRES will present Rev. David Billings; Unpacking Racism…A White Man’s Journey.

Thank you for visiting BONDFIRES!
