Let's talk about solutions.
In the news today, we learn about the increase in children bringing weapons into school, particularly knives.

For more about NVC, see Success Strategies for Black People.
Some of the posts below relate specifically to the experience of people of African heritage - Africa and the African Diaspora. Others also involve the experience of the wider community.
Because of our historical experience of slavery and colonisation, as well as our ongoing experience of racism, violence affects the Black community in specific ways. For more of this, go here for my ebook Why We Need to Heal.
