I’m so grateful Dr. Matias and the many other authors who contributed to this work were willing to subject themselves to re-traumatization by revisiting the ways I (Becky’s) have harmed them.
I am all the Beckys in the book. Section Six still makes me weep as it hits so close to home. I don’t want to be doing this work because I want to unshackle myself from the guilt. But I can see the times I have used my activism as penance. I do not want my whiteness to get in the way and yet it does more than I truly want to acknowledge.
If I ever had the chance to speak to Dr. Matias, I’d tell her thank you for gifting me with a mirror that reflects the parts of me I was unwilling to see and willfully overlooking.
