In 2018, after a negative experience with a friend and coworker, Myisha T
had to end it in order to make room to cope with the negative impact that it had on her mental health. That’s when she became more curious about white women and their relationship with privilege, and it was the beginning of her journey to identify her own internalized oppression and racism.
She began her Check Your Privilege interview series during Minority Mental Health Awareness Month that year, and it was important to her that she look beyond throw-away or Cancel Culture—to find ways that white women, in particular, were working to shift from passive ally-ship on to becoming action-driven co-conspirators to BIWOC (Black, Indigenous Women of Color).
Myisha now works with white and white-passing folk, organizations and community groups, guiding them on a self-reflective journey to explore their relationships with power, privilege, and racism.
It’s no easy feat to offer this work as a single mom and a social entrepreneur, but Myisha finds deep honor in holding space for people who are ready to “learn, listen, and listen some more,” as her friend Cara would say.
