UBUNTU! This transcendent African word means, "I am, because we are." It’s an African philosophy that embraces the belief that we are universally connected to each other—and Shola Richards suggests it could transform the way we treat others, making us kinder and more respectful to others. While not shocking considering our current political climate, these sentiments illustrate the disconnect between belief and practice, or perhaps the lack of self-awareness and individual responsibility, in the US today. Richards encourages the reader to reflect upon their own participation in incivility, to explore their pain and reactions to it, and to use ubuntu to find the unity and togetherness necessary to build a better world. We can't do this alone--healing the world is something that we must do together. So let’s get started!

As more and more children attend the growing number of marches across the country, this cheerful guide by Martha Freeman, serves as a great reference tool and conversation starter for youthful participants. This picture book addresses many of the questions kids might have: What should I wear? How will I get there? Where will I be able to go to the bathroom? All the while the text stays focused on the fact that the right to assemble is a Constitutional part of our life as Americans . . . whatever our political point of view.

Dad explains in viral post why he won't walk alone in his neighborhood: 'This is my reality'

We are so very proud of our author Shola Richards who is inspiring so many people to speak up, not be silent, and to take action. His story and his positivity is encouraging people to "share more kindness, empathy and love with their fellow humans, regardless of race." We stand in solidarity with him and all of our authors, colleagues, readers, partners, and neighbors who experience racism and oppression.

Shola Richards said as a tall, athletic black man, his young daughters' presence keeps him safe from harm.

Happy #foodiefriday. Enjoy this recipe for Kimchi Queso from The Peached Tortilla. This recipe serves 6-8. Would it be greedy of me if I didn't share?! 🙂

INGREDIENTS
4 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
2 ¼ tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
1 pound Velveeta® cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes, or American cheese (cheddar blend is fine), shredded
½ cup pureed plus ½ cup whole Napa Kimchi
1/3 teaspoon white pepper
½ teaspoon Kochukaru Flakes
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1⁄3 cup green onions, chopped
1⁄3 teaspoon kosher salt to taste
1⁄3 cup Cotija cheese, for garnish
Tortilla chips, for serving

DIRECTIONS
1. In a medium-size pot, melt the unsalted butter over low heat. Once the butter has melted, add the flour to make a roux.
2. Cook the roux for another 4–5 minutes until you start to smell a nutty aroma. The roux will start to turn a slight off-white. Turn the heat up to medium and whisk the milk into the
roux. Simmer the mixture until the milk thickens. This should take about 5 minutes. Constantly stir the mixture to ensure you do not scald the milk.
3. Add the cheese and simmer the mixture until the cheese melts and is fully incorporated.
4. Once the cheese is fully melted, whisk in the pureed kimchi, white pepper, kochukaru flakes, cilantro, green onions, and salt.
5. Garnish the queso with any extra cilantro, Cotija cheese, and kimchi, and serve it with your favorite tortilla chips.
ENJOY!

Happy #foodiefriday. This week, our recipe comes from CHEF JUNIOR. A book of 100 recipes made by kids for kids. Here is the Avocado Quesadilla recipe by Will Bartlett. This is quick and easy and will never let you down. Enjoy!

TOTAL TIME: 45 minutes
MAKES: 4–6 servings

EQUIPMENT:
Cutting board
Paring knife
Grater
Butter knife
Large skillet with a lid
Metal spatula

INGREDIENTS:
2 avocados
8 ounces mild Cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons butter
1 dozen sprouted corn tortillas
Coarse sea salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS:
1. Working on a cutting board and using a paring knife, pit, peel, and thinly slice the avocados.
2. Using a grater, shred the cheese.
3. Cook and assemble the quesadillas in batches: Put a large skillet on a burner on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Using a butter knife, put 2 tablespoons of the butter in the skillet to melt. Once the butter is foaming, place a single layer of tortillas in the pan. Top with some cheese (you’ll need to take into account the number of quesadillas you will be making to divvy up the cheese). Cover the skillet and cook until the cheese is melted.
4. Top the cheese with some avocado slices (again you’ll need to take into account the number of quesadillas you will be making), a sprinkle of sea salt, and another tortilla. Flip the quesadillas with a spatula so that the browned tortilla is now on top and grill just until the bottom tortilla is softened or lightly browned. Make more quesadillas, as needed, with the remainder of the tortillas and ingredients.
