Hi all, Caylin here again this week, as you may have seen on social, Jess is taking personal time after Nora’s passing. She really was the sweetest dog, I vividly remember her sprawled out on the floor between Jess and I when we brainstormed the concept of Click. Read. Love. and I’m pretty sure she was snoring. She will be so missed! Here are some interesting reads from this week and Jess sent some links to include as well. We hope you enjoy them and are so grateful for your presence here.

If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

Click. Read. Love. 2.12.21

From PBS, Tell Them We Are Rising is a documentary about the essential role of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities.

My favorite college professor just wrote an outstanding essay about the failings of generic medication—I learned so much reading this article. A must-read if you take any prescription drugs.  (C)

On the enormously painful process of grieving our pets.

How cute does this new Netflix kids show, (with Michelle Obama!) Waffle + Mochi, look?

Women, especially Black women, experience healthcare bias, this essay is terrifying and relatable.

Have you watched Framing Britney Spears?

The primal scream: how society has turned its back on mothers.

This conversation between Michelle Obama and Amanda Gorman for Time was wonderful.

What women have lost during the pandemic—unemployment numbers don’t tell the whole story.

Have you watched WandaVision? Stick with me here, I wasn’t into the concept initially but in a weird way I think the show is really about grief and how we handle grief as women? I’ve been really enjoying it. (C)

Acts of violence and racism have increased exponentially during the pandemic—especially against Asian Americans.

I’ve been loving the posts that @danielleprescod is creating for BHM on her stories. (C)

The psychology behind victim blaming: when people want to believe that the world is just, and that bad things won’t happen to them, empathy can suffer.

Here are some free virtual events you can attend to celebrate Black History Month.

26 Black Americans You Might Not Know But Should from Oprah Magazine. 

For people calling Tom Brady the GOAT…wait just a minute…what about Serena Williams?

A fascinating story about the women who raised three civil rights icons. On my reading list is The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation. (J)

    Hi all! Insightful artists transcend divisions, inviting us to find joy and connection in the laughter they inspire, while offering a clear understanding of the world around us. Comedians are modern day jesters who create humor as their art. They delve into the quirks and absurdities of life, using laughter to reflect our shared human experience.
