So hard to pick one [thing I I learned from you]! Patience, and to breathe! When we're talking about racial justice and equity there are so many factors and variables at play ALL the time. You are an expert at balancing the need to push forward hard, while keeping the faith in growth of self and others.

If you are wondering how to move your organization forward in regards to racial justice development--and you've found Dr. Raedell, you are on a path of transformation that will help you grow in ways you didn't know were possible. It takes great skill to create a space where individuals can feel safe to share yet pushed to reflect. Dr. Raedell is able to create this space across contexts -- in classrooms with children, university courses with adults, and in the workplace -- in ways that not only engage people in rich dialogue but results in actions that work to dismanlte unjust power structures.

Inequity is a heavy lift that, if tackled together and with openness, becomes lighter from generation to generation.

I am a firm believer that stories, with their universal truths, help people see how we are more alike than different. Dr. Raedell is a trained journalist with a gift for helping others share her lens of equity. There's no better academic expert in using personal testimony to break open truth and affect change.

During a team meeting, we were reflecting on Black History Month and were invited to share something about African-American history or culture that we found compelling. Two or three white colleagues, including me, shared events that including misery or violence. ... [Raedell] said that for her Black History was a celebration of the joy, power, and creativity of Black people. Her comment brought me up short, because it made me realize that I wasn’t seeing African-Americans as fully human, who experience the range of human capacity and emotion; that casting them only as victims is disempowering and dehumanizing. Raedell was always clear, firm, and compelling in her perspective and analysis... I so value what I learned from her.
