My name is Aaron Johnson. I am an earth builder, a teacher of closeness, and an activist. I use intimacy to dismantle racism; I am committed for the rest of my life to end racism. The tools I frequently use are speaking, teaching, closeness to blackness, and minimalism. Deep connection is a powerful tool in dismantling racism. I use questions as a lens that white people can look through and see blackness. I also use questions as a lens that white people can use to look at themselves and see how their own wounds and trauma from racism are stopping them from being close to black people. I am a firm believer that if you cannot get close to black people, you cannot be a true advocate for them. Being close to blackness is the revolution.
