This past Friday, one year after Eric Garner's death, I made my way to the #BlogHer15 stage to do my reading. As I read my piece, a photo of my son appeared on the monitor and I broke down in tears. The subsequent response from the audience was incredibly supportive. After the ceremony, women of all races came up to me — some with tears in their eyes — and said that they too don't know what to tell their sons.
Rita Arens, Managing Editor of BlogHer.com, MC'd the awards and told me backstage that she would come on stage and help me finish reading the article if I couldn't do it. Except, I don't know how she would have done that, as she admitted she was crying too!
