    I love that this challenge literally challenges me to think differently and take actions I wouldn't normally think to do.  Yesterday I happened to walk by a farmers' market in a historically black neighborhood and I decided to stop by on whim, got to purchase some great bread, fruit and handmade soap from local employee owned black businesses and had some good conversations.  Now I know that market exists and I'm excited to go back again and support a local community in my hometown and support businesses owned by people of color.
