Amplifying Black Excellence
You find out your white colleague is making more money than you, even though you've been working there longer and do the exact same job. Or maybe you hear your boss commit yet another microaggression. Whatever the catalyst, you finally decide enough is enough and talk to someone about your experiences... only to be told it's all in your head. What do you do?
