13. Kimberley Martin, NFL Reporter, ESPN
In an effort to learn how to be a better ally to my black friends, neighbors, and colleagues, I had an open and honest dialogue with my friend Kimberley Martin. Kimberley and I worked together at Yahoo Sports. She recently made the jump to ESPN to cover and write about the NFL. She's a talented journalist, a generous spirit, and an honest human. I wanted to go to her to speak openly about race, social injustice, and how each of us play a part in all of it. The goal of this episode is to encourage you to have your own productive conversations with people you love and and maybe some folks you don't even know. Staying silent has proven to be ineffective and it's time we understand how to better serve and support the black community--our fellow human beings.
