This is the opening talk I gave for the Black and Buddhist summit. In it, I share how we can apply the Buddhist teachings to decolonize our minds and embrace our ancestry and history as a part of the greater Black liberation movement. I discuss the Buddha’s teachings on freedom alongside Harriet’s journey as a conductor on the underground railroad. Just like the Buddha, Harriett too was also guiding people toward liberation. A great conversation about how we can heal internalized oppression and feelings of anti-blackness.
